RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) -- Before the Redskins can start working on a new practice facility in Richmond, archaeologists will take the field first.

They are searching the plot of land behind the Science Museum of Virginia where they will hold training camp later this year.

Archaeologists want to make sure no burial grounds or Civil War artifacts will be covered up by the new facilities and fields. If nothing is found, construction could begin as early as this weekend.

The Redskins and Robert Griffin III could start training camp around the end of July.
