The site of fortfication Ukosa is located in the city of Stalac, on the Mojsinje mountains, above the left bank of the South Morava .
In probe that was last opened on the north slope of the adjacent hill Kućište, measuring 5 x 3 m, a skeletal tomb was found (rectangular stone lined with grave).
The grave didn`t had any artefacts. "Deceased" was laid on his back with his right arm bent at the elbow and left arm set next to the body.
According to the localization, typical findings can be obtained. Thus at the shoulder joint tuberculosis (caries sicca) we can see spots that superficially usurp the humeral head. Adequate food rich in vitamins and proteins, rest and sleep are general measures that increase overall defense in the organism.
Tubercular inflammation of the shoulder joint occurs in two forms, as a dry form (caries sicca), which is much more common as the caseous form with the formation of cold apcesa. Often the first sign of illness is severe atrophy of m.deltoideusa and the other muscles and shoulder girdle.
It is shown that a significant proportion of TB disease (including tuberculosis of bones and joints) can be caused by bovidae type tubercle bacilli (via an infected animal milk). A high percentage was caused by the human type tubercle bacilli and it was passed from person to person .
The exact cause of death of the female individual can not be determined only by X-ray images of bones, but with a large probability one can claim that the outsides of both the upper femur and humerus are both cystic and degenerative changes that are absolutely characteristic of tuberculous changes, which means that the person definitely suffered from bone tuberculosis during life, but whether this disease and was the immediate cause of death ,can not be confidently assert.
