Mandy Posgai

Archaeological Technician (NCDOT)

Mandy Posgai is a native of St. Louis, Missouri, and holds a BS in Biological Sciences (University of Missouri at Rolla), a BA in Anthropology (Colorado State University), and most recently a MA in Anthropology with a focus on Archeology from North Carolina State University. Her thesis project explored how people of a large Pueblo II period community interacted with ritually closed structures in the heart of the settlement during the active life of the community based on data collected from four subterranean structures in the central plaza area of the Champagne Spring site located near Dove Creek, Colorado. Her research interests include ritual practice, structural decommissioning, rock art, and public archaeology.

Mandy volunteered with OSA as a graduate student and became a permanent staff member in 2022 as an Archeological Technician where she supports the North Carolina Department of Transportation through research requests, data management, and artifact curation.
