Abstract

 It is here presented the case of a male adult skeletal individual of around 30-35 years of age, who was buried between the 5th and 6th century A.D. in the oratory of Monte San Martino (Trento). The markers of habitual and occupational stress have been confronted with those related to the so called “knight syndrome”. This analysis includes also the study of the deficiency and paleopathological conditions of the individual, in order to define if the entire biological profile of the subject could be compatible with repeated horse riding activity.
