Alexandria Archaeology Department. The excavation included the time periods of the late 17th Century to the Civil War period. Processed artifacts through cleaning them of debris and cataloging each by type and context from where excavated; daily notes were recorded in field journals for a reflection of the conditions, context and other relevant information.
