In the event you miss this, or you want to pick it up and run the dungeon outside the main story we say kill two birds with one stone, but up to you! Enquire about it to start the quest. After the opening camp fire, follow the tunnels until you reach a room with a lone Bandit, a lever and a series of rotatable stones with adorned with symbols on the left.
Don't pull the lever, lest you want a shower of arrows in the face, and turn the stones on the right to whatever matches the two high above at the far end of the room the middle stone is the one lying on the ground next to the lever. The answer is Snake, Snake, Fish, which allows you to safely pull the lever, raise the gate and progress. Loot the goods on the table ahead and then go down the wooden staircase left, and follow the passage until you encounter a webbed over room on the left, which you can swipe apart so you can enter.
Defeat the spider - it's fairly easy to kill even at this early stage - and chat to Arvel, who will continue to Golden Claw quest. Regardless of what happens, Arvel will try and flee with the Golden Claw as soon as he's free, so cut him down and kill him to get the item - you'll need it to continue. Continue down the passage behind Arvel until you reach a room filled with Draugrs. Defeat them, watch out for the pressure pad by the gate as you progress further, and following the next room is a passage with swinging blades to avoid.
Simply step forward a few paces after each one goes until you reach the end. If you don't fancy fighting the Draugr, then you can always ignore them, run past the blades and they should follow you into their path - though if you have a Follower, then they could also do the same so they get through unhindered.
Either way, there's a switch to the right you can pull when you're through the other side that'll stop the blades from swinging further. Continue to a lit room with a waterfall and a Dragur that emerges from a coffin leaning against the far wall. Pull the chain next to the gate where the water flows to, and follow the water down until you can take a passage right. Follow the passage round so you pass the waterfall on your left you can continue down for a chest and press onward until you reach a Restless Draugr, which is a little more powerful than the rest.

You can get a few cheap hits in as he climbs out and draws his weapon, otherwise make sure you are healed regularly and take your time to evade and block, and he should go down quickly.
