Has My Clematis Died?

My Clematis has gone totally dark brown. I do not believe this is due to a lack of watering, as I watered frequently; therefore, my question is did I over-water it? What causes clematis to go like this?

Toxins in the soil such as excessive salt or fertilizer can also be a problem, particularly if the plant is close to a road.

There is also the possibility of a disease:
