I've got a cattle metatarsal (Early Medieval hill fort) with an odd
pathology on the distal end. Extra bone growth has extended the joint
surface of the lateral half of the lateral epicondyle. The bone growth is
smooth. A similar condition is also found on a sheep metatarsal from an
urban post-medieval site.
Does anyone know what this is, and what may have caused it?
