The Corpse-Woods

The Northmen who cut the East Bight buried their ancestors in barrows on the edge of the wood, and planted a yew tree above each barrow. Today, the barrows are hollows amid the roots of towering trees, hidden unless you know which hollow goes deeper than the rest, leading down into the earth.

Legends tell that the Necromancers sent forth spirits from Dol Guldur to inhabit and haunt these barrows.
