Unusual neck pathology in a Nevisian prehistoric individual

Morris, Elaine and Zakrzewski, Sonia R., (2007) Unusual neck pathology in a Nevisian prehistoric individual Zakrzewski, Sonia and White, William (eds.) In Proceedings of the Seventh Annual Conference of the British Association for Biological Anthropology and Osteoarchaeology. Archaeopress., pp. 43-48.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


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.
