Memoria del Registro Arqueológico en México: Treinta años

edited by Silvia Mesa Dávila, María Teresa Castillo Mangas, Pedro Francisco Sánchez Nava, and Miguel Medina Jaén

This volume celebrates the thirtieth anniversary of the Public Registry of Archaeological Zones and Monuments and the federal law that created it. Contributions range across archaeology, law, biology, geography, social anthropology, and ethnology. These disciplines are all involved in the extremely complex task of recording all aspects of archaeological heritage, which is, by definition, patrimony of the Mexican nation. The articles fall into several topics, including the legal framework for the public registry of archaeological patrimony, the activities of the archaeological registry between 1972 and 1996, non-portable archaeological patrimony, delimiting archaeological zones, interdisciplinary programs for the protection of archaeological zones, and society and archaeological patrimony. In Spanish.
