well im doing a presntation about fear and one of the causes of fear is:The causes of fear can vary to a surprising degree; fear is to a certain extent a "cultural artifact"

what does culture artifact mean in that sentence?

In my opinion, this means that what we fear is very much dependent upon culture. You will find that fears in China are different from those in India, which in turn are different from Western societies. It also has to do with your upbringing.
