Kolbjorn Barrow is an ancient Nordic tomb found in Solstheim as a part of The Elder Scrolls V: Dragonborn. It can be found directly between Raven Rock and Hrodulf's House. It is the final resting place of the Dragon Priest Ahzidal.

The book Ahzidal's Descent will activate a miscellaneous quest which will direct you to Kolbjorn Barrow. This book can be found on a table in Neloth's chambers of Tel Mithryn. The book can also be found in Highpoint Tower.


During the Red Mountain eruption of 4E 5, the entire tomb was completely filled with ash and rubble.
