Bouzincourt is a commune in the Somme department in Picardie in northern France.

The name Bouzincourt is derived from the words for forest (bosquet) and the typical Picardy village suffix '-court' . It was therefore a wooded village.


Bouzincourt is situated on the junction of the D938 and D20 roads, some 18 miles (29 km) northeast of Amiens.
