Material Culture As Cosmological Marker
Dimitriadis George


The present paper aims to spot out which kind of cosmological markers could be detect by the study of material culture. Ground for such cognitive approach is the “comet” pattern impressed on a Neolithic north Italian ceramic (Valcamonica, Italy) and its correlation with a “comet” rock-art configuration from the same geographical area. A comparison study is tryied to be done with extra European material culture & cosmologies.

Keywords: cognitive science, cosmological marker, material culture.
