This collection contain reports, site records, images, site database, and GIS from an evaluation at the Cavendish School, Impington, Cambridgeshire.

Between the 4th and the 12th of March 2021, Oxford Archaeology East (OA East) conducted a programme of archaeological evaluation within the grounds of Impington Village College, Impington, Cambridgeshire, prior to the development of the Cavendish School (TL 44550 62942). Eight trenches were excavated within a proposed development area of c.0.7ha, previously occupied by single-storey buildings belonging to the College. This work was undertaken to aid in identifying the preservation and extent of any non-designated heritage assets. Evidence for medieval activity was found in the south-east corner of the site in Trenches 5, 6 and 9. An enclosure boundary ditch was revealed in Trenches 5 and 6. Medieval pottery was recovered from this feature in both trenches. Within the area of the enclosure, in Trench 5, several pits and a post hole were exposed, some of which also contained medieval pottery and were potentially associated with the enclosure. Trenches 5 and 9 revealed several plot-boundary ditches, quite similar in form, but on varying alignments. These included three parallel ditches running on a north-east to south-west alignment in Trench 9, with one producing a small quantity of medieval pottery. The relationship between these ditches and the enclosure ditch in Trenches 5 and 6 is unknown. Outside this south-eastern zone, archaeology was extremely sporadic. Trenches 1, 4 and 7 each contained a shallow undated pit. Trench 2 revealed an undated ditch terminus and the remains of a hedgerow, which produced one fragment of modern brick.
