Sardinia

A subcommittee of sorcerers from Sardinia did something of historical relevance at some point in time, though we have no idea what or when. Nevertheless, the subcommittee was the subject of the lecture Professor Binns had begun when Hermione interrupted him to ask about the Chamber of Secrets (CS9).

Sardinia, part of Italy, is an island in the Mediterranean Sea southwest of Rome.

The subcommittee was the subject of the lecture Professor Binns had begun when Hermione interrupted him to ask about the Chamber of Secrets.

Commentary

Notes

Rowling likely featured this particular fact because she liked the tongue-twister element of it. Imagine Fred and George trying to say "subcommittee of Sardinian sorcerers" five times fast!
