Logan Pinkstaff

Field Supervisor

University of Southern Indiana, BA Anthropology

Logan Pinkstaff is originally from Jasper, Indiana, and attended the University of Southern Indiana in Evansville, Indiana. Logan graduated with a Bachelor of Science in anthropology, but that was not always his plan. He went into college undecided, tossed around the possibility of a business or psychology degree, until eventually, he took an archaeology introduction course as an elective and fell in love. During the summer after graduation, Logan attended an archaeological field school in West Lafayette, Indiana, near the Purdue campus, where he and a mixture of USI and Purdue students did excavations near the French fur trading site of Fort Ouiatenon, dating to the 1700s. After getting this hands-on experience, Logan was certain this was what he wanted to do. Shortly after field school, Logan moved from Jasper to Lexington, Kentucky, to start his career as an archaeology field technician at Cultural Resource Analysts, Inc.


Apart from archaeology, Logan has a wide range of interests. Fishing, exploring new places, and finding deals at local vendor malls are just a few, while his true passion is for Star Wars. Being the oldest of three siblings, Logan also holds the time spent with his family in high regard.
