Kynesgrove circa 4E 201

Kynesgrove, a simplification of the original Kyne's Grove,[1] is a small village south of Windhelm. The village survives off a Malachite mine and some farming.[2] Although there are an abundant amount of trees in the area, they are considered sacred to Kyne and are not allowed to be harmed.[3] The dragon Sahloknir, who was slain in the First Era by the Nordic hero Jorg Helmbolg, was interred in a dragon mound near the village.[1] During the Stormcloak Rebellion, the Last Dragonborn purportedly came to Kynesgrove and slew Sahloknir within minutes of the wyrm's resurrection by Alduin.[2]
