Summary

The paper we present reveals the legal basis of the Mexican cultural heritage public registry and the consequences of the relation it sustain with it´s statements and academic interests involved in the description of archaeological materials.

Accordingly, the real work begins of typology, chronology and cultural classification, associated with the sites and related archaeological materials, as well as, its preservation status.

All this information is stored, organized and published, in a strong database system, also designed to provide indicators to enhance the policies for heritage protection, based on real data.

It´s important to stress the relevance of developing a systematic, homogeneous and standardized database designed, according to Registry Law parameters.

This National Public Registry database is being inputted by curators and academic researcher contributions, ensuring certainty about archaeologic goods, it´s amount, localization and academic assets for the future planning projects.
