Water in the reservoir recedes a few weeks each summer and allows archaeologists to investigate the graves of bygone civilizations that had named the place home.

The water will rise at the beginning of July and cover the tombs up to 15 meters deep, frozen in winter, until it retreats again next summer.

Archaeologists have discovered both ancient human remains and artifacts from civilizations from the Bronze Age to the Genghis Khan era at the site.

Especially rich in finds are death scrapers from a time when an old Huns population ruled about 2,000 years ago.

They include two prehistoric & # 39; fashionista & # 39; s & # 39 ;, women decked out in the splendor of the era in which they lived.

This extraordinary site of Atlantis is located in the mountainous Republic of Tuva in southern Siberia, a favorite holiday destination for Russian President Vladimir Putin.

The locations are on the so-called Sayan Sea, a gigantic reservoir upstream of the Sayano-Shushenskaya dam, Russia's largest power plant, on the 3,445-mile Yenisei River.

The reservoir covers 240 square kilometers, but in the summer the water level drops around 50ft, with 110 graves on an island in the reservoir near Ala-Tei.

Another site called Terezin has at least 32 graves and is closer to the coast.

Last year came a 2000-year-old mummified & # 39; sleeping beauty & # 39; dressed in silk from one of the stone tombs.

She was originally supposed to be a priestess or a noblewoman because of the quality of her wares, but scientists now say she was probably a leather worker.

This time, experts discovered the body of another woman, also draped in finery, which they say was a weaver's weaver.

Other graves from the long ago Bronze Age and the Genghis Khan, less than a thousand years ago, are also here.

& # 39; This site is a scientific sensation & # 39 ;, said Dr. Marina Kilunovskaya of the St. Petersburg Institute of Material History Culture, who led the Tuva Archaeological Expedition.

& # 39; We are incredibly lucky to have found these funerals of wealthy Hun nomads who are not disturbed by grave robbers. & # 39;

Both the fashionista mummies were found with fragments of leather, threads, and a spindle that could have played a special role in Huns society, & said Dr. Kilovovskaya. The Siberian Times.

& # 39; Huns have cherished women. It was not a matriarchy, but women – mothers and skilled artisans – were treated with great respect. & # 39;

These were silk, mirrors and coins made during the Han Dynasty – 206 to 220 AD – which is described as a golden age in Chinese history and culture.

The so-called Sleeping Beauty was laid to rest with a silk skirt that was held by a beaded belt with a gemstone gemstone clasp.

Her rich funeral meal included a pouch of pine nuts prepared for her life after death, and in an intricately crafted stylish wooden bag was her Chinese mirror.

Other treasures were turquoise beads that were used to decorate the belt, a set of much smaller purple beads, fragments of a belt ring made of copper alloy, a buckle of bone buckle with a beautiful engraving and an iron knife with a ringed handle.

The & # 39; weaver & # 39; was buried with sparkling glass beads, two stone pendants and two leg buckets.

While this ancient Hun civilization was nomadic, but at the same time, they had settlements, places where they lived permanently.

& # 39; These were the bases of wealthy people, and we dig their graves on & # 39 ;, said Dr. Kilunovskaya.

WHO WERE THE HUNGS AND HOW HAS THEY HAVE THE ROMANS?

The Huns were a nomadic community from Central Asia.

They traveled to Europe and threatened what was left of the Roman Empire.

It is likely that they have fled from a dry period in Asia. In search of food and water, they conquered as they left.

In AD 216 – when their territory was split into five successor states – the Huns had extended their control area north to Siberia, south to Tibet, east to the Pacific and west to the Caspian Sea.

The shepherds' diet was rich in meat and fish.

The Roman Empire collapsed because of frightening Huns who attacked the eastern border around the fourth century AD. Pictured is an artist & # 39; s impression of a fight between Roman and Their soldier

The Huns also ate a lot of millet, which has a distinctive chemical signature that can be identified in human bones.

The wandering Huns grew millet as it grows in a few short weeks.

Agriculture was considered the foundation of Roman civilization, and the Romans had a major problem with the Huns because they were not engaged in agriculture and instead had a nomadic lifestyle.

The Roman Empire collapsed because of frightening Huns who attacked the eastern border around the fourth century AD.

Roman reports of the Huns largely tell of terror and destruction: the group fought on horseback using lung arches to attack their enemy, and was known for their cruel and blood-curdling war cries.

& # 39; Barbarian & # 39; tribes soon moved to the power vacuum in Europe that was created by the decline of the Roman Empire.

These include the Huns, Francs, Vandals, Saxony and the Goths.
