Abstract: During the recent construction of the Ross County Regional Water System in Southern Ohio, the skeletal remains of a prehistoric American Indian were recovered. The isolated burial remains represent the skeleton of a male, between 40 and 45 years of age. The discovery circumstances prevent accurate determination of the date of deposition. An extensive examination of the skeletal remains suggests the occurrence of several pathological lesions among which are: a healed fracture of the left clavicle, osteoarthritis of the joint surfaces of the long bones and vertebrae, periostitis of the lower limbs, cribra orbitalia, and an advanced case of Leggs-Calve-Perthes Disease.
