Little known secrets of Skyrim

Post anything you can think of that may be considered as such.

For example; there are circles made up of alternating mushrooms scattered across Skyrim; these are called Fairy Circles in European Folklore & are considered a place where faeries come to dance, also maybe a gateway of sorts.

Not sure how much of a secret this is, but I doubt everyone knows about it.

As far as I am aware, they are a part of Kyne's quest.
Could be wrong.
But I distinctly remember at least one of the targets spawning inside one of these circles.

In a small pond near the giant camp west of whiterun, there's a King Arthur allusion (I think). When I first got the game I was just walking around exploring and then I heard a sound a bit like an angelic choir. I turn around and a skeleton's hand is holding aloft a sword from the pond. It was just a regular sword but it was still kind of cool

While traveling through a snowy region of Skyrim, I came upon a destroyed house that was on a fire, and inside was a burnt corpse holding a Scroll of Summon Flame Atronach in its hand. My wife even foud that humorous.

If you go to the museum in Dawnstar, lockpick the display case with the burnt piece of paper with the logo for the Conjuration skills, and cast a Destruction spell on it, it'll turn into a bucket.

 

After the Stormcloak attack on Whiterun, the priest of Talos there will start living in a tent next to the shrine, since his house was destroyed in the attack.

In the wilderness east of Winterhold, You can find a wooly mammoth frozen in the ice, full of dwarven arrows, that was presumably hunted by dwarves hundreds of years ago.
