Findings will be presented in November. Two medieval mummies from a mystery Arctic civilization have been discovered at the edge of Siberia. The remains of an adult and baby were found in the Zelenyy Yar necropolis, an archaeological complex first discovered in 1997, and were covered in copper—with the adult having been plated from head to toe.

Excavations at Zelenyy Yar ended last week and over the course of this year’s expedition to the Arctic site, scientists found 10 graves. Five of these had not been looted for their grave goods—valuable objects placed with bodies in ancient burials.

As a result, the team will be able to better understand the little-known civilization that lived in this region between the eighth and 13th centuries AD. Alexander Gusev, expedition leader, said the remains were found near one of the three monuments at Zelenyy Yar. They were buried in a North-South direction, with their feet facing a river.

Both mummies were covered in birch bark and canvas. The adult’s body had been encased in copper plates, while the baby was covered in fragments of a copper kettle.

"When we saw that the adult's burial cocoon was in good condition, we couldn't risk opening it on the spot. To avoid spoiling the fabrics, we extracted it inside its soil shell," said Yevgenia Svyatova, an anthropologist working at the site.

In a press release put out by the official website of the Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Region, scientists said comprehensive analysis of the two mummies will now take place at the Institute of the Development of the North, a branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences.

The team will now use computer tomography to look at the remains within their burial cocoons, including any artifacts within them. They will also study the DNA of the mummies and carry out histological (microscopic anatomy) and parasitological analysis.

Results from the latest field studies will be presented at a conference covering archaeology in the Arctic, which will take place in Salekhard in November.

The remains of a medieval ' mummy ' wrapped in a cocoon of birch bark has been discovered at the site of a village that belonged to a mysterious arctic civilisation . The Zeleny Yar necropolis was found just outside Salekhard in Russia, just 18 miles from the Arctic Circle.

It is the first mummy from the civilisation found at this intriguing site since 2002. Previously, archeologists found 34 shallow graves at the medieval site, including 11 bodies with shattered or Probes taken by South Korean experts will reveal lifestyle of this Arctic boy from 800 years ago.

Most remains were found in the later burial ground. These are characterized by wooden sarcophagi, birch bark wrapping and the dead being dressed in fur clothing. Many of the adults were found to be encased in copper like the newly discovered mummy. Another child was found with her face masked in copper plates. Between the graves, archaeologists found bronze boilers and bronze and silver ornaments.

Researchers have yet to see the results from the latest mummies, but none of those previously discovered at the site were female. All of the bodies were buried with their feet pointing towards the river, the significance of which is thought to be religious.

Who these people were and how they ended up on the edge of the Arctic is not known, but previous DNA analysis has shown they had links to Persia. Researchers are currently working to connect the civilization to the local indigenous population living in the region today.
