Webb also discusses the thickened cranial vault of WLH 50, which he ascribes to a hemoglobinopathology based on the presence of 'hair-on-end' diploe near bregma that is often associated with an acquired anaemia, such as malaria, or an inherited form, such as thalassaemia.
The exposed diploe is splintered, but the fragments still adhere to one another.
