The Orwell Site, designated VT-AD-12 in the state archaeological inventory, is a mainly prehistoric archaeological site in Orwell, Vermont. The site, first investigated in 1933, is significant as one of the state's few documented examples of a heavily stratified site, with layered evidence of occupation extending back at least 2,000 years, and into colonial times. It includes a prehistoric Native American burial site with at least 46 grave sites. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1977.
