Nottingham is a small town on the Patuxent River in Prince George's County, Maryland. It contains an archaeological site listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1975.
The Nottingham site is an archeological site located on a terrace of the Patuxent River, near Upper Marlboro, Prince George's County, Maryland. The site contains an important record of more than 5000 years of prehistory, including Middle Archaic (ca. 6000 BC) through Late Woodland (AD 1600) materials. Of particular note are a sizable Middle Woodland Selby Bay component, and a large Late Woodland component (ca. AD 1550-1600) which may correspond to the village of Mattpament depicted on John Smith’s 1608 map.
The Bowie family settled in this area during the colonial period, building a number of homes including "Mattaponi".
Benjamin Contee was born in Nottingham.
