Archaeologists were stunned to discover an iPhone buried with the body of a woman, in a grave which they believe to be over 2,000 years old.

The burial site is located in the Russian republic of Tuva and is known as the The Russian Atlantis.

For most of the year, the area remains under water, draining only in the months of May and June, when researchers get the opportunity to study the area.

They have named the woman Natasha and the black rectangular object which is decorated with Chinese wuzhu coins as an iPhone, according to the Siberian Times.

The object is in fact a rather large belt buckle, and the coins which decorate it are believed to have been minted around 2,137 years ago.

The area is of particular interest to archaeologists, who have previously discovered graves dating back to the era of Genghis Khan.

the discovery is a chic ancient belt buckle made of gemstone jet with inlaid decorations of turquoise, carnelian and mother-of-pearl.
