Skyrim Fan Points Out Clever Detail About Dragon Burials Map

The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim‘s main quest tells an epic story about the player character Dragonborn discovering their special abilities at a time when ancient dragons have seemingly come back to life. Skyrim‘s main quest takes players to all kinds of interesting and dangerous locations, with one area visited fairly early on in the game being the Bleak Falls Barrow dungeon, a place filled with deadly traps and enemies.

During the Bleak Falls Barrow main quest, Skyrim players are tasked with traveling to the titular dungeon and obtaining the Dragonstone. At the end of the dungeon, Skyrim players learn a word of the Unrelenting Force shout, which triggers the Draugr Overlord to spring to life. Upon defeating the Draugr Overlord, Skyrim players can loot its body for the Dragonstone, which they then deliver to Farengar, located in Whiterun at Dragonsreach.


Later, Skyrim players will have to meet with Delphine at the Sleeping Giant Inn to progress the main quest. Delphine will show the Dragonborn to her secret room, and it’s here where the Map of Dragon Burials is located. The map shows players the locations of dragon burial mounds dotted around the land of Skyrim, and players first have to utilize it to find the dragon burial mound in Kynesgrove, specifically, but it can be used to find other burial mounds as well.

An interesting detail that Skyrim players may not have noticed about the Map of Dragon Burials is that it’s actually a rubbing of the Dragonstone from the Bleak Falls Barrow quest. This was pointed out by Reddit user TryHard-Rune in a post that has over 8,000 upvotes at the time of this writing. Based on the comments, many other Skyrim players never realized this detail either, though others claim to have always known about this.

Skyrim is an absolutely massive game with a world full of small details like this, so it’s no surprise that many players may have never noticed this. After all, this is a fairly small detail in Skyrim‘s main quest, and the game’s main quest is really just the tip of the iceberg. Skyrim has a ton of side quests, dungeons, and more to keep players busy pretty much endlessly.

Skyrim‘s longevity is backed up by sales data. Despite being over a decade old at this point, Skyrim returned to the video game sales charts last month, showing that gamers are seemingly never going to grow tired of the game. As more people return to the world of Skyrim, it will be interesting to see if other small details like this are discovered by the community.

The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim – Anniversary Edition is out now for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.
