Mimir makes a passing comment the first time, but you have to experiment a little more than expected to find the solution.
The prerequisite to start this hidden quest is to possess the mysterious relic: Mystical Legacy. You may already own it, in which case you'll probably be happy to finally find out what it's for.
For those who don't have it, here's how to get it. To start, you need the Draupnir Spear , which requires advancing far enough into the main story. This also means that you will not be able to start the quest the first time you pass near the relic, or the petrified trolls. Use the spear on a rock with a weak point, south of the Temple of Tyr, in Midgard. Here is its position on the map.

Travel to Forbidden Sands , in the northwest section of the area, after stopping the sandstorm. Climb the curb to reach a terrace with the troll.
The last place to visit is at Naotun Gardens , along the rivers to the west of the area. These trolls are less remarkable, since they blend into the background a bit.
