Alexandria Archaeology Bibliography

Topical Listing of Archaeological Reports

 

     

Return to Bibliography index page 

 


Introduction to Topical Listing

This is a topical listing of reports on archaeology in Alexandria, Virginia. Below each topic is a list of associated sites/projects. If a Virginia site registration number exists for a project, then it, too, is listed.

In an attempt to bring the so-called “gray literature” to light, all of the reports listed below are available for download as PDFs. Simply click on a report to go to its precise entry on the Alexandria Archaeology Bibliography.

We remind researchers of their browser’s search function to find specific reports. We suggest searching for site/project names like, for example, “Bruin Slave Jail” and “Christ Church,” historic identifiers such as “American Indian” and “Civil War,” and street names.

For a comprehensive listing of written material on archaeology in Alexandria, view the full bibliography. It also includes some historical and architectural studies.

Titles without PDFs may be read, by appointment, at the Museum. Alexandria Archaeology Publications, a series of booklets and manuscripts published by the Museum, and photocopies of archaeological reports may be ordered for a fee by contacting the Museum.
