AbstractHuman cognition does not rest upon individual minds alone but is distributed across persons, things, and time. Archeology, the discipline of things par excellence, has much to offer to researchers interested in cognitive processes. The material world is crucial in processes of enculturation and cultural transmission, in shaping daily experience and perceptions, and in orienting action. In this chapter, the concept of material culture is examined as it is commonly understood today in archeology and material culture studies. Furthermore, the diverse roles of material culture in relation to cognition are explored through specifi c examples from prehistoric, historic, and contemporary societies.
