Storage of documents for historical interest


Ministry of Magic

The Ministry of Magic Archives is a Ministry of Magic office encharged with preserving and documenting historical records, and with increasing public access to those documents.

The Archives keep secret records detailing a mass operation involving 167 Memory Charms and the largest ever mass Concealment Charm performed in Britain (the morning after these alleged crimes, the villagers of Hogsmeade found that they had a railway station with a gleaming scarlet steam engine, and the Muggle railway workers in Crewe spent the rest of the year with the unconfortable feeling they had mislaid something important).[1] The Archives also had information on the accidents throughout the history of the Triwizard Tournament, and published a book on the subject, titled Triwizard Tragedies.[2]
