s•u•n•s•h•i•n•e «§KENZ§» | 600 comments The History of Magic Classroom


When Cuthbert Binns became professor of History of Magic, he was given this classroom to teach in. He filled the room with books on history, and kept a Draconifors spellbook locked in a side-room, protected with minor magical defences. After his death, it was noted by students that the most exciting parts of his lessons was when he glided through the blackboard and into the room.

During the 1991-1992 year this class had a clock, a globe and a blackboard. It also had a capacity of eight students. It is unknown how that would fit was the other students in the classroom. The last day of the course the room was occupied by a Gryffindor student and a Ravenclaw student.

During the 1993-1994 school year, Remus Lupin used this classroom for his Anti-Dementor lessons with Harry Potter. He presumably asked for Professor Binns's permission beforehand.


The History of Magic classroom has a blackboard through which Binns enters and exits the room. It also has a window through which Hedwig could enter; the window has thick glass and a narrow ledge. Just up the corridor from Binns' classroom, in the direction of the marble staircase, is a window with a view of Hagrid's cabin.
