The Elkridge Site, or Elkridge Prehistoric Village Archeological Site, is an archaeological site near Elkridge in Anne Arundel County, Maryland. It is located on a 20-foot (6.1 m) terrace above the Patapsco River and extends 1,200 feet (370 m) along the river and inland from 20–400 feet. It is the only known Woodland period riverine-oriented village site in the tidewater Patapsco River valley which has at least partially escaped the totally destructive forces of gravel quarrying. The site appears to have been abandoned as a permanent village in the early 16th century.
