A charge is a type of explosive spell[2] possibly invented by Seamus Finnigan. In 1998 Seamus and some other students planted some charges all over the Wooden Bridge at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in order to bring it down during the Battle of Hogwarts in the hope that some Snatchers or Death Eaters would be killed while infiltrating the Castle.
