muggle history

Hmmm -- if the wizard society pulled away from Muggles in modern types, as the Harry Potter books say it did, how did wizardly history affect Muggle history?

All those Goblin Wars?  All those dragons?  If they weren't separate, the wizards would have had to re-write history with censorship to prevent notice.  Perhaps recast some of it as fiction.  (A la L. Jagi Lamplighter's Prospero's Daughter trilogy.)

But there might still be traces left where the patch job had to be a bit awkward because nothing could make the omission of magic neat.
