Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document This document presents some of the results of excavations at Chiquitoy Viejo, a site built after the Inka conquest of the Chimu. Although the site appears to be an Inka road waystation or [i]tampu[/i], it is atypical. It was probably an Inka administrative center built to supervise commerce and inspect shipments of high status goods or tribute being sent to Cuzco along the coastal highway. The site consists of a walled access road off the highway, a large open area where goods could be inspected and caravans unloaded, housing for an official and housing for the official’s retainers, and a burial platform. The burial platform supports an interpretation that the site was built for one official and then abandoned during the second official’s tenure, probably due to the Spanish Conquest.
