On 29th May 2001 staff of the Archaeological Field Unit (AFU) of Cambridgeshire County Council conducted an archaeological evaluation on land at 9-21, Lone Tree Avenue, Impington (TL 4414 6183) in advance of a proposed residential development. The area is situated within an historical landscape that includes the Iron Age monument at Arbury Camp, Roman finds in the vicinity of Akeman Street (Mere Street), and remains of the medieval hamlet of Howes Close presently in Girton Parish. Six linear trenches totalling 95m were mechanically excavated. The site produced no archaeological features, with the exception of a shallow ditch (a drain?) along the side of Lone Tree Avenue, possibly associated with a former track. No dating evidence was retrieved from the ditch fill. Modern activity was represented by a large pit that contained a layer of burnt building debris.
