'Masnicová S, Beňuš R, 2001: The Health Status and Lifestyle of Historic Bratislava Inhabitants: I. Pilot Study of Long Bone Lesions from Gothic Part (XVth-XVIIIth cent. AD) of the Ossuary in St. Jacob Chapel (Bratislava, Slovakaia). Anthropologie (Brno) 39, 1: 63-68'.
 
Abstract
Long bones lesions of about 500 adult individuals from the Gothic ossuary in St. Jacob Chapel (Bratislava, Slovakia) were studied to determine the health status and lifestyle in historic Bratislava population. The presence of infections, joint lesions, cortical defects, enthesopathies and traumatic lesions was recorded, and prevalence of diseases was calculated. High prevalence of upper limb bones lesions reveals the activities connected with heavy work using arms (e.g. the carrying of heavy loads, agricultural activities, fishing) in the studied population.
