The Elder Scrolls V – Skyrim: Dragon Burial Site Locations

In The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim for the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360, there are twenty two dragon burial sites scattered across the continent.

You’ll have access to a map of the different burial site locations if you took it from Delphine’s table at the beginning of the quest “A Blade in the Dark”, where she has you meet her at a burial site to see if a dragon will be there. If you missed it, it should still be on the table at her inn in Riverwood, in the secret room in the Sleeping Giant Inn. Here is a screenshot of the map.

The map is a little vague, but it can help point you in the right direction.

During the quests with Delphine, she’ll inform you that the dragons are being resurrected in some sort of order, and you can see by the map that she is correct.

You’ll recognize a burial mound, because it will be a slightly raised mound, with a stone rim around it. They are fairly large, and stick out in the environment fairly easily.

    You can witness a dragon resurrection just northeast of Sunderstone Gorge during the “Cornered Rat” quest, also. Just head northeast until you are due south of Broken Fang Cave to find the burial mound. I was level 32 when I found it, and there was a Frost dragon (acting as Alduin’s bodyguard?) there as well, so it’s probable you will be fighting two dragons at once if you allow Alduin to finished the resurrection.
