Arkaim is known as Russia's Stonehenge because it may have been used by ancient people to study the stars, like the British site.
A skeleton with an unusual-shaped skull has been unearthed on a site known as Russia's Stonehenge.
When images of the remains were first published, UFO enthusiasts rushed to claim they were proof that aliens had once visited Earth.
But archaeologists have revealed that the bones belong to a woman who lived almost 2,000 years ago and had an elongated skull because it was bound out of tribal tradition.
The remains were found in Arkaim, near Chelyabinsk in central Russia - a settlement dating back almost 4,000 years.
It is believed the woman belonged to a tribe that was part of what is now modern day Ukraine.
