Morgur's Mound was the ancestor mound of the Thunderbeast tribe of the Uthgardt.[1][2]

It was believed to be the burial site of Morgur, Uthgar's mortal brother. Atop the mound was the skeleton of a long-dead dinosaur, known as a "thunderbeast" by the Uthgardt.[2] Rumors said that Thunderbeast shamans could animate the apatosaurus when their tribe was in dire need of protection.[citation needed]

When the Thunderbeast visited the mound for Runemeet late in the 15th century DR, they found that the mound had been dug up, both skeletons and the treasure within stolen.[2]
