THE TIMES WEDNESDAY APRIL 10 2002
From Oliver August

The Inca prepared for afterlife by burying cooking utensils, food, grooming products and personal effects with the departed.

1 The Cotton King’s cloth wrapping indicates nobility

2 Coca leaves, bean pods and sweet potatoes

3 A Mace, a weapon that signified a powerful warrior

4 A mummified baby, perhaps related to the Cotton King

5 Oyster shells, upper-class sandals, and an object that may be a headband or a sling
