Muggle studies


 Muggle Studies is the study of  non - magical  person,
their world, and the inventions they use to take the
place of magic.  There is prejudice showed by some
of the members of the wizarding world against
"mudbloods". muggles born with wizarding skills.
There are some mudbloods born in families were one
parent is a wizard and the other parent is a muggle.
 Pure - blood is a person with wizarding skills born
into a family where both parents were wizards.
 The greatest disaster in a wizarding family is to
have a child, called a Squib, with no wizarding skills.
 Non - magic people (more commonly known as Muggles)
were particularly afraid of magic in medieval times,
but not very good at recognizing it.  On the rare
occasion that they did catch a real witch or wizard
burning had no effect whatsoever The witch or
wizard would perform a basic Flame Freezing Charm
and then pretend to shriek with pain while enjoying
a gentle, tickling, sensation. Indeed Wendelin the
Weird enjoyed being burned so much that she
allowed herself to be caught no less than
forty-seven times in various disguises.

Because Muggles are afraid of wizard, wizards
try to keep their abilities and activities from the
non - magical world by using Protection Spells,
travelling in small groups and other magic spells.
The Ministry Of Magic even has an office, The Misuse
Of Muggle Artifacts Office that enforces laws
against bewitching things that are Muggle -
 made in case they end up back in a Muggle shop

or house.  When an old witch died, her tea set
was sold to an antiques shop. A Muggle woman
bought it, took it home, and tried to serve her
friends tea in it. The teapot went berserk
and squirted boiling tea all over the place
and one man ended up in the hospital with the
sugar tongs clamped to his nose. The Misuse
Of Muggle Artifacts Office, run  by Mr. Arthur
Weasley  and an old warlock called Perkins, use
memory charms on all the witnesses
involved to cover up these unnatural incidents.

Mr Weasley is crazy about everything to do with
Muggles.  He corners Harry and Hermione to find out
how things are done and how things work in the
muggle world.  He doesn't keep the laws about
bewitching muggle made things.   His shed's full of
muggle stuff which he takes  apart, puts spells on it,
and puts it back together again.

The Ministry Of Magic conducts  raids of peoples
houses looking for these muggle bewitched items.
The Ministry Of magic is trying to pass a Muggle
Protection Act.  This act was being promoted by
Mr. Arthur Weasley.
