This is a list of European archaeological sites on the National Register of Historic Places in Pennsylvania.

Historic sites in the United States qualify to be listed on the National Register of Historic Places by passing one or more of four different criteria; Criterion D permits the inclusion of proven and potential archaeological sites.[1] Approximately one hundred different sites in Pennsylvania are listed under this criterion, including both Native American and European sites.[2] This list includes all properties in Pennsylvania that qualify under Criterion D due to the presence of European artifacts.
