Wizards of Yesteryear
By yesteryear I mean really old times. Part of my new fic occurs in the time of the founders and in the time of the Peverell brothers. So here are my questions:
~ When exactly does History say the witch burnings happened (and where)?
~ How long did it take to build Hogwarts?
~ How many students might there have been at Hogwarts during the Founders Era?
~ Did the Peverell brothers come before or after the Founders?
~ When did the Tri-Wizard Tournament first take place?
~ What kind of tasks could be held during the tournament? (I need lots of task ideas...)
~ When did the Founders die?
~ Is Merlin- As in "Order of Merlin, First Class" -just a figure of speech in the HP books or did he actually exist at some time?
~ If so, when did he exist?
I know that's a lot of questions but if anyone can answer any of them that would be really helpful
