Shroud Hearth Barrow is an ancient Nordic tomb located just outside of the town of Ivarstead.


Lifting the ShroudEdit

After speaking to the Innkeeper, Wilhelm, the Dragonborn learns that the town believes the barrow is haunted and is asked to investigate these claims further.

The combination to the puzzle door inside the barrow is Moth, Arrowhead, Wolf. The next puzzle door is: Whale, Hawk, Snake, Whale


Notable itemsEdit

  • The Illusion skill book Before the Ages of Man can be found opposite from the levers in the first room.
  • After the door that requires the Sapphire Dragon Claw, within a water trap, a leveled greatsword, shield, and coin purse may be found.
  • After the final loot chest, across a broken bridge (best crossed by using Whirlwind Sprint), a leveled greatsword, soul stone, and coin purse may be found.

Word WallEdit

Within the Shroud Hearth Depths lies a Word Wall for the Kyne's Peace Dragon Shout.

The writing on the Dragon Wall transcribes to this:
