About corpses

How much time would it take for a corpse to become ashes? How long for it's clothes to disintegrate too? Are there some parts that wouldn't become dust?(This part, a buried corpse, like after a funeral service, but without the chemical stuff pumped into the body)

And what would be the condition of a corpse 2000 years after it's death, if it was left out in the open, but no outside force (like animals, rain, heat, etc) could disrupt it?

Thank you.
