This chapter presents the osteobiography of a middle-aged woman from Arroyo Hondo Pueblo, a Pueblo IV Late Prehistoric site near Santa Fe, New Mexico. Permanent bone deformation due to early childhood rickets presented physical challenges as residual rickets to this woman throughout her life. The author discusses notions of physical impairment and “disability” as they may have been perceived by the inhabitants of this late prehistoric village.

Keywords:   Osteobiography, Arroyo Hondo, Residual rickets, Disability, Ancestral Pueblo
