I am captivated by the history around me in the ASCE National Capital Section, and there is an archaeological area of interest on my current project. There are also five National Historic Civil Engineering Landmarks (NHCELs) in the DC/MD/VA region. (You can find a listing here: https://asce-ncs.org/index.php/committees/history-heritage/237-the-historic-civil-engineering-landmark-program.)
This leaves me to wonder if any ASCE members have an archaeological story to share! Have you been involved in a project where a historical object was uncovered during construction? What measures did the project take thereafter? Or, have you heard of any interesting archaeological finds on other civil engineering projects?
I look forward to hearing your experiences!
Thank you for your time,
