This work presents the authors research on legal issues concerning archaeological heritage and indigenous rights in Argentina. The country has overcome the political unrest of the early years of the new millennium and the previous heritage laws were finally modified in 2003, although the terms of the new legislation are still a matter of debate and have produced a great deal of criticism. After a treatment of theoretical issues, and a survey of the Argentine background, the work focuses on three case studies, The Pucara of Tilcara, the Quilmes ruins and the Menhires park, evaluating the attitudes of both the local populations and of visitors to the sites.
