Veleth Ancestral Tomb is a large Ancestral Tomb, a Dunmer burial crypt, in the Ashlands region of Morrowind. The tomb is located west of the Ghostfence, and is guarded by Daedra and the resurrected and desecrated corpses of Veleth family members.

The tomb itself is composed of typical hallways adjacent to small chambers as well as passages leading to large ones. A coridor leads from one of the large chambers to a sealed door, beyond which is a collapsed main chamber with a tower at the center. The tower itself acts as living quarters, with a study, library, and bedchambers. Velar Veleth, an insane undead wizard, used the Ancestral Tomb as his hideout on Vvardenfell in the late Third Era. The tomb was later discovered by Urjorahn and Yen, and the main chamber was refurbished into their base of operations after the mage retreated.

Veleth Ancestral Tomb was most likely destroyed during the Red Mountain's eruption or the Argonian invasion.
