Examples of cultural artifacts include almost anything - from pots and books, to religious items, clothing, and tools or gadgets. A cultural artifact is any artifact or item that sheds light on the way a particular society lived, thought or otherwise expressed itself. Because this definition is so broad, the entailing list of artifacts that might qualify as such is similarly vast.
