I've planted Bearded Iris that were over a year out of the ground and had good luck with a number of them surviving.  Yours may well be dead, but they may not.  If they are crisp and break easily, they are dead.  If they are still somewhat pliant with some moisture in them, they may just be dehydrated, and may still grow.
Good luck,
