The following events happened in the 1670s.
- 1672: Intensive studies in the Department of Mysteries dating as far back as this year demonstrate that wizards and witches are born, not created.
- 1675: Brutus Malfoy advocated the notion that witches and wizards who associate with Muggles lack magical talent, and have abilities no greater than Squibs. He used his influences on an anti-Muggle periodical Warlock at War, where he was an editor.
