J K Rowling is adding to the Harry Potter world of wizarding lore this week as Pottermore is updated with the ‘History of Magic in North America’.
Get your time-turners ready because you don’t want to miss out on these entries as they’re released.
What do we know so far? Well, spanning the 14th-17th centuries, the biggest difference between European wizarding communities and the Native American is the use of wands, or lack thereof.
Before settlers came to the Americas, the natives were proficient in ‘skinwalking’ as no-maj people coined it. But it was actually an animagus, often seeking escape from persecution or “to hunt for the tribe”.
It’s a fascinating read that makes us wish that our school History lessons were that cool… And who wouldn’t want Rowling as a teacher?
You can read the full piece here. Further pieces will be released on Wednesday and Friday.
