«[During the excavation at the Terezin cemetery] a mummy of a young woman was found on the shore of the reservoir. The lower part of the body was well preserved … This is not a classical mummy — the burial had been shut tightly with a stone lid, so a process of natural mummification took place in this case,» Kilunovskaya explained. She also added that the mummy belongs to the Hunnu era and is probably dated to the Ist century BC.

It is the first time that such a burial was found in Tuva. It could hardly be called a rich one; the scientists discovered remains of ceramic dishes and other items next to the body, which were used in funeral practice of the Hunnu.
