Brinsfield I Site, or Brinsfield I Prehistoric Village Site, is an archaeological site near Cambridge in Dorchester County, Maryland. The site was first identified in 1955 by Perry S.

The site may provide evidence of prehistoric life on the eastern shore of Maryland during the Late Woodland period, c. 900-1500.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1975.[1]
