Abstract

On 5th March 2001 staff of the Archaeological Field Unit (AFU) of Cambridgeshire County Council conducted an archaeological evaluation on land at Howes Close, Cambridge (TL 4315 6055) in advance of a proposed hotel development. The site is situated within an historical landscape that includes Roman and Saxon cemeteries in the vicinity (Girton College), and remains of the medieval hamlet of Howes immediately to the north-east. Three linear trenches totalling 31.5m were mechanically excavated. The site produced no archaeological evidence. The absence of archaeological features could be the result of extensive modern disturbance in the form of landscaping and levelling associated with the extant Howes House.
