However, there is clear preponderance of pathologically modified ribs from the caudal area of the thorax, which was, conceivably, more exposed to sources of violence. Cattle vertebrae from the same context are practically devoid of any recognizable pathologies. Rib fragments from the sanctuary are clearly identified as food remains by the omnipresence of anthropogenic modifications.
Obviously, the occurrence of pathological conditions, which may not have been noticeable on the fresh carcass at all, did not influence the use of these animals as source of meat. The relationship of butchery marks and pathologies of cattle ribs can be further addressed on the basis of specimens from the civil town of Carnuntum. Here, traces of heavy lesions could be observed.
In one instance, a cut-mark, putatively inflicted in order to sever a piece of smoked meat from the bone, actually bypasses a surface modification caused by a healed trauma.

The plane-form defect was probably triggered by short-term disturbances of the enamel matrix secretion.

Human Osteology and Palaeopathology
Such strong hypoplasia is extremely rare in osteoarchaeological records. Archaeologists have struggled to identify the varying degrees to which cattle were used for physical labour in the past.
Examining the cattle skeleton itself is the most direct method of analysis, yet the causes of pathologies, and those Examining the cattle skeleton itself is the most direct method of analysis, yet the causes of pathologies, and those which are anthropogenic, are at present poorly understood. Unfortunately whole depositions are rare and most cattle remains in the archaeological record are highly fragmented.
Cattle feet are therefore a very promising source of evidence due to their abundance and weight-bearing role. The only studies, however, up to the present day have been those of archaeological remains, cattle reared under modern intensive farming methods and only the third phalanx of water buffalo.
A herd of cattle have roamed wild and unmanaged by humans, since the medieval period, in Chillingham Park in Northumbria. The study of the Chillingham cattle is thus an ideal opportunity to remedy the aforementioned issues and provide a control against which past cattle populations may be compared.

- Human Palaeopathology.
By noting the rate of common pathologies such as exostoses, lipping, broadening and eburnation in an entirely unmanaged herd, we can determine the prevalence of said pathologies that we can expect in cattle that are not used for physical labour. This is an important step in investigating how a past community used cattle: were they used for physical labour, dairy, meat or a combination? The analysis constitutes a challenge to the ideas that all pathologies are anthropogenic, and that a particular form of lesion will necessarily have only one cause.
