Roberts, C. A. and Knusel, C. and Race, L. (2004) 'A foot deformity from a Romano-British cemetery at Gloucester, England and the current evidence for talipes in palaeopathology.', International journal for osteoarchaeology., 14 (5). pp. 389-403.
A male skeleton from the Romano-British site at Kingsholm, Gloucester, is described with abnormalities in the humerus, femur, tibia, fibula and foot. Computed tomography of the femora to enable cross-sectional analysis suggested altered normal gait to compensate for the deformity. Differential diagnoses are considered and a diagnosis of clubfoot deformity is suggested. Palaeopathological evidence for clubfoot is rare in the literature but the cases reported to date are reviewed.
