ABSTRACT
Archaeological Heritage in Argentina. Current Situation and Perspectives for the Future. A country's system for protecting heritage is reflected in its judicial and administrative structure, in the way the elements making up this heritage are defined and in the degree of community participation. In Argentina, the legal and administrative system has demonstrated a growing inefficiency in protecting archaeological sites and collections, and in satisfying the social demands on cultural heritage. In this article, strong and weak points of the archaeological heritage legislation in Argentina, as well as the new tendencies and future directions of this question are examined.
