Anyone want to conjecture on how they know this.

“Anyone want to conjecture on how they know this. “

I believe curvature of the spine was mentioned yesterday.

I’ve got to learn to read more. Here’s what the article said about the Abbot being fat:

The curvature of the spine suggests he was obese and perhaps suffering from type-2 diabetes.

That is possibly confirmed by the position of his arms, which lie flanked around his girth rather than crossed over his chest.

Strain on the vertebrae? Distortion of the rib bones?
