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

ON-icon-quest-Letter 02.png Name Ancestral Nord: Bows Value 13
Reginus Buca
Many of Skyrim's pre-Imperial forts were built during this period since the lack of infighting allowed for more substantial construction to proceed unmolested. Blocks were chiseled from catapult stone and they were whittling palisades down to arrows.

ON-icon-furniture-Stonefalls Map 02.png Name Antique Map of Stonefalls Value N/A
Amalien
Stonefall's early history is replete with tales of struggle and invasion. The borders shifted a lot during the Merethic and First Eras. This map displays a fleeting moment in time when ancient borders resembled those of the present day.
Ugron gro-Thumog
Indeed. Only a cartographer in service to the First Empire of the Nords would draft such a map. I'd date this to around the year 400 in the First Era.
Verita Numida
If that's true, then pity the poor cartographer who needed to redraw this map only a few years later. Morrowind pushed hard to expel the Nords. Empires based on brutality rarely last long.

ON-icon-stolen-Wineskin.png Name Nedic Wineskin Value 250
Verita Numida
While certainly brittle from lack of care over the centuries, I'm impressed by how well the skin held together. The Nedes were accomplished leatherworkers, perhaps due to a nomadic nature. Though I'm curious about the quality of their wine.
Ugron gro-Thumog
Note the shape of the neck and design of the strap. This is a warrior's wineskin. The owner may have raided Stonefalls during Nedic the campaign against the Chimer in this area. Such brutal work would require easy access to intoxicants.
Verita Numida
Yes, brutal indeed. These faded symbols on the sides are marks of the Rontha, the largest of the tribes to invade Stonefalls. Uniquely vicious, they branded items or people captured from battle. I suspect they were not this skin's original crafters.

ON-icon-stolen-Sled Horn.png Name Bronzed War Horn Value 1,000
Reginus Buca
A delightful instrument. This is Nord made, probably from a mammoth tusk considering the size. The bronze bands are scuffed and without decoration, suggesting this was a practical item and not decorative.
Ugron gro-Thumog
I believe this dates to sometime early in the First Era. Stonefalls endured an invasion by the First Empire of the Nords in that time. It seems likely that this horn heralded the army's rampage upon the land.
Reginus Buca
Yes, perhaps a blast from this announced Vrage the Butcher himself. We know he enjoyed traveling to survey his conquered territory. I gave the horn a small toot and it has quite a nice tone. Sounded regal, and not terrifying as I imagined.

ON-icon-style material-Dwemer Frame.png Name Dwarven Steam Conduit Value N/A
Amalien
Such a small conduit! It makes me think this belongs to an automata of some sort. Perhaps a vamidium? The metal features several reinforcing clamps. The Dwarves clearly designed this to withstand tremendous pressure.

ON-icon-quest-Letter 02.png Name Ancestral Nord: Chest Pieces Value 13
Reginus Buca
While minting the royal insignia in steel might appear to be a needless extravagance during a period of material shortages, Ugron assures me that the placement of the medallion is one of the most commonly struck locations on the body during a melee.

ON-icon-furniture-Ashen Infernace Gate.png Name Ashen Infernace Gate Value N/A
Ugron gro-Thumog
I've seen markings like this before, on the walls of Yasammidan. These etchings appear inert, but I'd still mind how you speak around it. Ensorceled gates--even long abandoned ones--aren't something to tinker with.
Amalien
Ugron, always the worrier! As you said, any magic this gate might have harnessed dissipated centuries ago! The structure doesn't conform to any Chimeric aesthetic I'm aware of. It almost seems like something conceived in Oblivion itself!
Verita Numida
The inscription reads, Infernace. A command word, perhaps? Or simply the name of the realm it led to? With the appropriate ritual, an ancient Chimer have been able to coax an atronach out of this thing. Fascinating.

ON-icon-stolen-Adornment.png Name Chimer Military Insignia Value 5,000
Amalien
Chimer military insignia stand out as unique among Mer since their designs didn't incorporate House sigils. Nonetheless, I can determine this belonged to the legendary General Balreth by the striking flourishes of color that signify unparalleled honors. I must admit to feeling some sadness while holding these badges. Balreth sacrificed everything to protect his people from the Nede hoard. These represent the last remnants of his life before his transformation.

ON-icon-misc-Crate.png Name Fire Lancer Value N/A
Amalien
This looks like some kind of shimmer-thrower--you know, like the ones the Baandari use during festivals? We haven't seen much in the way of Dwemer frivolity but if this was a kind of firelight show, that could prove everyone wrong! How exciting!
Ugron gro-Thumog
Amalien gives the Dwarves too much credit. As usual. This looks more like a weapon to me. Some kind of complex ballista that could fling projectiles at a distance. This could change the war in Cyrodiil if someone managed to rebuild it.
Reginus Buca
I'm no metallurgist, but this metal could likely endure tremendous heat; so I agree with Amalien on that. To Ugron's point, yes, I strongly suspect this is a weapon of war. Something used to rain fire down upon one's enemies.

ON-icon-mementos-Dwarven Tonal Forks.png Name Torc Tonal Focus Value N/A
Ugron Gro-Thumog
Quartz, common, shaped with no great skill or design. Considering the workmanship of the other pieces that make up this magical torc, I must wonder if the original focusing stone was replaced with an inferior one by some lesser artisan.
Reginus Buca
Common quartz, yes, but not in the context of this magical torc. Quartz is a crystal, and crystals possess many unusual qualities regarding the transmission of sound. To carve or shape this stone might have ruined its natural resonance. Or so I guess.
Gabrielle Benele
My dear colleague Reginus is, as usual, more right than he lets himself admit. Different crystals naturally conferred different tonal properties. Every piece of this torc was exactingly shaped to focus the specific resonance of this crystal. Perfect!
