Stine Rossel (1975 – October 20, 2007) was a Danish archaeologist. She was a postdoc and Instructor of Egyptology at the University of Copenhagen. Her interests included zooarchaeology, the effects of environmental change on animal use, and the rise of complex societies.

Stine was a zooarchaeologist who carried out analysis of faunal materials from several important archaeology sites in Egypt, Turkey, Pakistan, and Sudan. She received her PhD in Anthropology from Harvard University in 2007, and her PhD was titled "The development of productive subsistence economies in the Nile Valley: Zooarchaeological analysis at El-Mahasna and South Abydos, Upper Egypt".
