This lecture will discuss how cementeries can be considered as sites of cultural heritage to be preserved as collective patrimony. These places have high significance amongst people, communities, and social groups as they carry emotions, memories, and history reflected in specific practices deeply rooted in identity. Mexico's funerary iconography reflects such complexity.
