I go to the dragon locations in Skyrim, but there are no dragons. I've looted the chest and learned the word, but there are no dragons to be seen. I'm playing on a 360.

    Have you got to the correct point of the main quest to unlock them? – shanodin Nov 15 '14 at 10:42

You need to reach a certain point in the main questline.

Upon the start of the quest "A Blade in the Dark", Alduin will begin to revive dragons from their burial mounds scattered across Skyrim.

    Note that one the player completes Dragon Rising (which is an earlier quest), random dragon spawns will start. – user6789 Nov 17 '14 at 17:03
  • This is really interesting to know, I spotted a dragon flying high up in the skies once before this and tried chasing it to enter combat. Hadn't realized at the time they weren't officially in play yet. – Ian Nov 24 '14 at 13:00

You need to finish the 2nd battle in the main questline 'Dragons Rising' you need to do this to get your shouts this is the ONLY way to get dragons to start to spawn.
