BONE INJURIES IN THE VISIGOTHS OF CLUNIA (BURGOS). 5th-7th CENTURIES A.D.

Abstract

The skeletal remains studied in this article come from an area within the ruins of the ancient Roman city of Clunia (Burgos, Spain). The grave goods found near the skeletons are Visigothic and date back to the 5th-7th centuries CE. Twenty complete adult skeletons have been conserved, 15 of which are male, 3 female and 2 of undetermined sex. There are few remains of adolescents or children. Several traumas have been detected in the skeletons, along with a number of major diseases and non-pathological changes to bone plasticity. The site is important in palaeopathological terms because of two lesions that are uncommon in this field of study: a malignant neoplasm of the femur (individual 6) and a possible teratoma (individual 7). Previous studies have only mentioned a few of these conditions.
