This is a list of all of the Antiquities that are found in Craglorn.

ON-icon-furniture-Craglorn Map.png Name Antique Map of Craglorn Value N/A
Reginus Buca
Given the relative position of the land to the Dragontail Mountains, this has to be a map of Craglorn. Marvelous!
Gabrielle Benele
Few places in Tamriel have changed hands more than Craglorn. Just by the sheer amount of different ruins that can be found there, it's hard to tell what perspective this was drawn from.
Verita Numida
Yes. Nedes, Orcs, Yokudans, Ayleids, Dwarves ... the list goes on and on! It's almost comforting to know that despite its tumultuous history, the land itself remains largely unchanged.

ON-icon-stolen-Cape.png Name Watcher's Ritual Stole Value 250
Reginus Buca
Looks Nedic to me. The stitching makes it irrefutable. The design suggests whoever wore this was important, in a position of power or worship. Maybe it belonged to a member of the Perena's clergy?
Gabrielle Benele
I'd defer to you and Verita on matters Nedic, but this cloth seems saturated in arcane residue. I've seen the work of hedge mages trying to master "soul magic." This bears all the telltale signs. Did any of the Nedes meddle with anima?
Verita Numida
Meddle? I suppose. Based on my research, a sect of Nedic mages called the Eternal Watchers, used their souls as a means to lock away a lich called Virmaril the Betrayer. This could belong to one of them.

ON-icon-minor adornment-Pendant.png Name Cracked Serpent Pendant Value 1,000
Gabrielle Benele
There doesn't look to be anything inherently magical about this, but this is no ordinary piece of jewelry. If I had to guess, I'd say it's Nedic. The serpent cradling the stone seems reminiscent of the ones I've seen in Craglorn's ruins.
Reginus Buca
Yes, a prime example of Nedic stonecraft-jewelry! A stonesmith likely created it for a Nede of high station--a queen, or a princess perhaps? You're right to point out that serpents often appear in Nedic ruins, but I've never seen one in their jewelry.
Verita Numida
Yes, many Nedes wisely kept their reverence for the Serpent constellation at arm's length. Recent events in Craglorn make the dangers of flirting with such a powerful entity abundantly clear.

ON-icon-misc-Broken Sword.png Name Sacrificed Weapon of the Four Value 5,000
Verita Numida
Mamireh, Akamon, Roshadon, and Rok'dun the Flame, referred to as the Four, were among the most prominent Yokudan warriors of the first invasion of the Nedic homelands. They were Ansei of the first rank, of course, and before undergoing initiation they were required to give up their most treasured weapons. Supposedly, Akamon's sandal-bearer carried the shards of his master's first dagger as a daily reminder of his sacrifice.

ON-icon-furniture-Spellscar Shard.png Name Spellscar Shard Value N/A
Ugron gro-Thumog
This isn't particularly old, but it's still noteworthy. We don't fully understand where it came from, but that obelisk in Craglorn stirred up all sorts of arcane mischief. Looks like it even managed to bend natural law here.
Amalien
Yes indeed! It's difficult to determine if this is Tamrielic matter transformed by the obelisk's impact, or some fragment of the obelisk itself. I'd like to conduct some experiments on it. Those striations seem overloaded with magicka!
Gabrielle Benele
I think the magicka stored in this fragment is largely spent at this point. Removing it from the crash-site might have diminished its connection to the obelisk, resulting in a slow degradation of its potency. It's inert, yes, but still beautiful!

ON-icon-quest-Dwarven Tonal Prism.png Name Aetherquartz Tonal Resonator Value N/A
Amalien
This translucent stone makes a sound when properly placed in its setting. I can feel a bit of a zing when I touch it, so it has residual charge left. Extraordinary! I wonder what this relic empowers!

ON-icon-furniture-Altar of Celestial Convergence.png Name Altar of Celestial Convergence Value N/A
Verita Numida
Nedic architecture--my specialty! This shrine conforms to the Nedic architectural aesthetics we found in Craglorn, with a few notable exceptions. The central element strongly resembles a Mundus Stone, but I don't recognize the constellation.
Reginus Buca
For once, we agree! Culturally distinct constellations do exist, but the Nedes' conception of the stars mirrors our own in more ways than I can count. Perhaps they meant to re-write the stars in some way? To merge traditional archetypes into new wholes?
Gabrielle Benele
Seems pretty hubristic for the Nedes, don't you think? In any event, I don't detect any significant magical potency here. If they were trying to channel aetherial energy through this altar, it's all but faded now. Still a beautiful piece, though!

ON-icon-style material-Bone.png Name Ebon Dwarven Wolf Head Value N/A
Gabrielle Benele
Ah. A wolf's head shaped in metal. For all their brooding and reclusiveness, it seems even Dwarves weren't immune to the dog's inherent charm! Everyone loves a loyal dog, right? Given the scale, this wolf almost certainly wants for a rider.

ON-icon-stolen-Monocle.png Name Large Aetherium Lenses Value N/A
Amalien
Ah, precious aetherium! These gems might provide some form of vision, perhaps serving as lenses in a farseeing device? Certainly not meant for a person of Dwarven scale. These probably belonged to a vamidium or other large animunculus.

ON-icon-quest-Dwarven Part 02.png Name Torc Throat Guards Value N/A
Verita Numida
Strange; I've never encountered a Dwemer torc equipped with these shield-like extensions. Designed to amplify the voice, perhaps? Or to protect the wearer's throat from harm? To what purpose? An armored gorget would seem more practical.
Gabrielle Benele
Ah, I've got it! This torc was created to harness tonal architecture—the Dwarven craft of using sound to shape reality itself. It was a powerful form of magic … or machinery. Although I'm not sure the Dwarves differentiated between the two.
Amalien
Tonal architecture! I've seen the things the Dwarves made with it, of course, but I never imagined I'd actually see a device used by tonal architects in the course of their work. Why, who knows what Dwemer wonders were shaped by this torc?
