NOVELO OPPENHEIM, Victoria. Herencias culturales desconocidas, el caso del patrimonio industrial mexicano. Cuad. antropol. soc. [online]. 2005, n.21, pp. 37-49. ISSN 1850-275X.

Although the concept of cultural heritage has changed along with history, in Mexico it involves primarily the conservation, appreciation and restoration of some of the great number of prehispanic and colonial monuments and sites. Some efforts have been made to expand the concept, basically from those studying the labor class culture or the history of architecture and technology so that it can include the industrial past, since the stage known as "Industrial Revolution" is a very meaningful heritage since it brought about very profound changes in the ways of life of the Mexican people and therefore, the Mexican society as a whole. The author of the article seeks that social scientists and cultural policies should give much more importance to the study, documentation, preservation and diffusion or that industrial heritage (tangible and intangible) with the help of "industrial archaeology" and its methods of research.

Palabras clave : Industrial archaeology; Heritage; Culture; Technology; Labor.
