Ansilvund is an excavation site into the ancient Nordic tomb of Fjori and Holgeir. It is located in Eastmarch and is northeast of Shor’s Stone. Outside the entrance is a ruined stone tower. The entrance is a cave in the mountainside. Ansilvund is a large sprawling tomb filled with multiple traps.
Ansilvund is a Nordic Ruin which is the final resting place of Fjori and Holgeir. It is learned that Lu’ah Al-Skaven is overwhelmed with anger and hatred for both the Stormcloaks and The Empire regarding the loss of her husband, Saeel, in battle. Lu’ah and her Mage lackeys have been raising Draugr to excavate the site in hopes of raising the legendary Fjori and Holgeir to lead her undead army into battle as a means of ultimate retribution, but more importantly, to use Holgeir as a vessel to resurrect her fallen husband. Her thoughts and motives are chronicled in Lu’ah’s Journal. .
The ruins are what is left of the tomb built by Holgeir in memory of Fjori, as described in the book Of Fjori and Holgeir. They are guarded outside by a leveled warlock, usually found near the cooking spit, inside the ruined tower at the alchemy lab, or near the hay pile. In one of the pots is a dead Mudcrab, and on the table is a copy of Of Fjori and Holgeir. Inside the tower is an alchemy lab beside which are some ingredients and potions, a locked chest, and a hay pile for sleeping. On top of the tower is a boss chest; to reach this area Whirlwind Sprint with at least two words must be used. Stand on the small rocky outcropping almost directly above the excavation entrance and face west towards where the tower near wall is the lowest and the rear wall juts up. There is an iron ore vein a few yards to the north of the cooking spit.
