50 Examples of Material Culture

 , August 03, 2021
Material culture is any element of culture that has a physical presence. This includes things that are produced, purchased, consumed and used by a society or culture. Material culture can be contrasted with intangible elements of culture such as language, norms, social constructs and stories. Generally speaking, material culture is a very small part of culture but is of interest to fields such as archaeology as these produce enduring artifacts of cultures. For example, when everyone alive today is gone, some of our physical possessions may endure for thousands or perhaps millions of years. The following are common elements of material culture.
