CRESPO, Carolina. Among "duty" and "rights": Archaeological heritage and social obligations in Argentine. Intersecciones antropol. [online]. 2006, n.7, pp.63-75. ISSN 1850-373X.

In recent years the archaeological remains from several Patagonian provinces were legislated under the category of "cultural heritage," regulating their scientific, cultural and, in some cases, touristic use. Nevertheless, beyond the behaviors regulated by the legal text an entire series of behaviors and social connections coexist that is governed by other rules or principles which transcend the normative framework. As such, the goal of this paper is to analyze the social exchanges that are woven together beyond the institutional and legal scaffolding erected around archaeological goods - specifically rock art - in a Patagonian city. The relevance of the analysis lies in the type of relationships that are now actualized around this heritage, the change of meanings of these artefacts that such relationships motivate and the effects they produce on the management of the archaeological heritage. An analysis of the exchange of services and of the mutual obligations that arise serves as an example of the new meanings acquired by archaeological goods - especially rock art in Argentine Patagonia - in recent years, as well as the complexities of its management.

Palabras clave : Archaeological heritage; Mutual obligations; Re-signification; Management; Patagonia of Argentina.
