Over the years, a small series of skeletal remains have been collected by the Nelson Museum. Despite the poor
preservation of the material, several specimens exhibited pathological changes. Severe neck pathology was found in one
specimen deriving from the prehistoric site of Coconut Walk. This paper presents the changes in the vertebrae and
elsewhere within this individual and proposes block vertebrae (possibly even Klippel-Feil syndrome) as the diagnosis.
