A remarkable 2,000-year-old “sleeping beauty” skeleton has been found at a Russian reservoir in Siberia.

The well-preserved mummy, said to be that of an ancient woman, was still dressed in the silk skirt in her grave.

She reportedly also had a pouch of pine nuts on her chest ready to take to the afterlife.

A significant fall in the water level of a reservoir upstream of the giant 794ft tall Sayano-Shushenskaya hydroelectricity dam on the River Yenisei in south Russia led to the burial site of the woman - as old as Christ - reappearing on the shoreline.
