The man was wrapped in layers of finely woven textiles and a gauze-like material. Embedded in those layers were several offerings. Some things buried with him include cotton balls which would indicate he was a weaver and corn which indicates a high status. There were also other artifacts such as a necklace, slingshot, and figurine found in the tomb. His organs were removed through disembowelment. His face also was covered in metal plates and red paint which were used for preservation and further show his status as some sort of elite in the Chancay society.
The Chancay were subjugated by the Inca so there is not much known about them. The tomb allows experts to better understand the Chancay. Experts conclude the Chancay held substantial regional control on the north-central coast of Peru during the period known as the Late Intermediate—about A.D. 1000 to 1476. Experts also concluded that the Chancay were independent and often traded with the Chimor Empire which was previously thought to rule the land of the Chancay.
There are no broken bones or wounds, he may have had an fatal infection.
Kiko's tomb was found by luck when a ceramics expert was looking for ceramic remains to help secure better dates for the Chancay's occupation of the valley. The Chancay tomb is the only one excavated and scientifically examined.
