Protección del Patrimonio Cultural en México, a través de la Dirección de Registro Público de Monumentos y Zonas Arqueológicos e Históricos

Part of: Society for American Archaeology 82nd Annual Meeting, Vancouver, BC (2017)

La Dirección de Registro Público de Monumentos y Zonas Arqueológicos e Históricos es una dependencia del INAH creada desde 1972, a partir de la necesidad de tener el conocimiento pleno de los bienes muebles e inmuebles del país como lo son: paleontológicos, arqueológicos e históricos, así como el conocimiento de su ubicación para su resguardo, ya sea por personas físicas, personas morales, y los que forman parte de los acervos del propio instituto. Con el objetivo de dar a conocer las tareas sustantivas de la Dirección de Registro Público y las normas bajo las cuales se protegen dichos bienes, se pretende exponer y difundir ante colegas nacionales y extranjeros las problemáticas, retos y logros en relación al patrimonio cultural mexicano y su protección, además de hacerlos participes de la relevancia de su colaboración en la inscripción de los sitios y materiales, obtenidos como resultado sus investigaciones en México.
