G Grupe. Anthropol Anz.

Abstract

To reveal the morbidity of George Christoph Lichtenberg, his skeleton was exhumed in May 1983. This paper deals with the identification of the skeleton as well as with its pathology. Since Lichtenberg left detailed knowledge about his bodily appearance in his own writings, and so did his contemporaries, the identity of the skeleton can be taken for sure because of the good correspondence of several morphological and pathological features.
