MEDIA ADVISORY: Significant Archaeological Finding To Be Presented Friday

November 01, 2012

A press conference will be held on Friday at 1 p.m. to announce a significant archaeological discovery in relation to the University of Virginia Cemetery.

Expected to be on hand are Jody Lahendro, historic preservation architect; Benjamin Ford of Rivanna Archaeological Services; and Gertrude Fraser, vice provost.

After a few brief statements, there will be ample time for questions and photographs. There is no power at the site, so a multbox will not be provided.

The attached map shows the location of the press conference; from McCormick Road, turn onto Hancock Road. You’ll be directed to parking.

Please RSVP by 11 a.m. Friday by emailing Marian Anderfuren at manderfuren@virginia.edu.
