At some point in this century...
- Service exchanges become commonplace in the wizarding community, allowing the development of wizarding trades. Broomstick makers of more skill start negotiating with their acquaintances. Broomsticks thus improve in quality and comfort, an essential condition for the spread of broom games (QA1).
- Yorkshire resident Goodwin Kneen writes a letter to his cousin Olaf in Norway, in which he discusses a game of Quidditch which reveals how the sport has progressed since the 11th century. The position of Chaser had developed, and the Bludgers and goalposts had progressed from their earliest forms (QA3).
- Snidget-hunting becomes fashionable at the start of the century. A tapestry depicting the hunting of the Golden Snidget is created (QA4).
Scottish wizard Guthrie Lochrin writes of the "splinter-filled buttocks and bulging piles" he experiences after a short broom trip from Montrose to Arbroath. The letter demonstrates that brooms are not well developed and very uncomfortable at this time (QA1).
Wilfred Elphick dies. Elphick famous for being the first wizard to be gored by an Erumpent (FW). Given that Erumpent horns are highly explosive (FBAZ), it is very likely that this encounter is the cause of his death. However, his Famous Wizard card shows him heavily bandaged but alive, so it is possible that he survived and his death had another cause.
