Outside the ruin is a small camp. Inside, the Dragonborn meets, Medresi Dran, an adventurer who asks the Dragonborn to kill three Draugr which are preventing further excavation of the ruin. Further inside the ruin, there is a dragon shout wall with one of the words for the shout Animal Allegiance. To access the treasure, the Dragonborn must first enter the Catacombs and the Ruins to locate the switches which control the gate.
One of two areas is full of Draugr, which must be cleared to open the gate to the treasure room.
In one of two areas full of Draugr, which must be cleared to open the gate to the treasure room, is a copy of Before the Ages of Man.
