Extensive Muggle and magical historical and anthropological research has revealed much, but not the whole story. In 2023, ten years after the master wandmaker’s death, a provision of Mr. Ollivander’s last will and testament allowed Harry Potter to give several exhaustive interviews telling the wizarding world the Ollivander family history - the founding of the oldest wizarding business in the world. Finally, the StoryTeller can chronicle this in a readable manner — from Harry’s eyes the summer before his third year.
A/N - One reader commented that my "382 B.C." is the definitive history of the beginning of magic. However, most readers don’t review at all, so don’t be that impressed with his kind words.

No one ever described Millicent Bulstrode that way.
