Adwick-le-Street is a village in the Metropolitan Borough of Doncaster in South Yorkshire; it derives its name from the great north British Roman routeway, Ermine Street, also known as the Roman Ridge.

The village has two remarkable burial sites; in January 2001, archaeologists discovered the remains of an Adwick woman in a traditional pagan Scandinavian burial site. now known as the Adwick-le-Street burial, it appears to belong to the period of Viking settlement and consolidation in the late 9th century; and in December 2007, archaeologists discovered the remains of 35 Anglo-Saxon burials dating from the 7th to 9th century, this is believed to be the first Anglo-Saxon cemetery of this type found in South Yorkshire and one of the most significant Anglo-Saxon finds in the country.
