The Wikipedia article on Hogsmeade is a good example... and it has a picture(s). Travlr23 03:35, 7 Dec 2005 (UTC)

We are trying as much as possible to create articles just as good as the ones in the Main without copying their text. Pictures are fine, but original ones would be more welcome. The Chosen One (Choose me!) 06:24, 7 Dec 2005 (UTC)

Why, may I ask, does it have for Location, "Scotland, England"? I am Scottish. Scotland is not part of England. It is part of Britain. Get it right please, I consider that a bit offensive. 15:02, 21 September 2007 (UTC)

Its like that because someone obviously typed it wrong, or doesn't understand the social-political situation in Great Britain. And, if you find it offensive, remember that this is Wiki and you can correct it. - Cavalier One 15:05, 21 September 2007 (UTC)
Yeah, I guess I could have corrected it myself, but I didn't know its exact whereabouts. It looks good now though! 11:56, 23 September 2007 (UTC)

Hogsmeade location

Quote: Hogsmeade is located at the northwest of Hogwarts Castle. Source please? Selkie Lefay 13:49, May 4, 2011 (UTC)


Should we write a etymology topic with informations about the name Hogsmeade and others names in this text? Andre G. Dias (talk) 19:44, January 21, 2014 (Brazil)

I think this is a good idea. The etymology of Hogsmeade is likely derived from mǽd, the Old English word for meadow, and could easily be called such because it was founded in a meadow outside the boundries of Hogwarts. Phoenixdaisy (talk) 06:40, July 27, 2016 (UTC)

Is it just me, or....

Have someone removed the sentence mentioning how Hogsmeade is located in the Scottish Highlands? O.o Ninclow (talk) 11:44, September 25, 2016 (UTC)

Establishment Date and Appearance/Climate

I just thought I should point out that, in the Hogwarts Legacy trailer , we see a sign above the entrance to Hogsmeade that says it was established in 914 A.D (1:26).

Also, it shows a Hogsmeade that is not covered in snow, as is the case with the movies and the set designers' decision that it's located "permanently above the snow line". I know the game has yet to release, but should either depiction of Hogsmeade be considered a higher tier of canon than the other? The movies are more prominent with more involvement from Rowling, but the game is much more recent, and thus there's the potential for this to be a retcon or being a more accurate portrayal than in the movies. Garr9988 (talk) 23:19, October 8, 2020 (UTC)

It is definitely an interesting point, so thanks for bringing this up, but as the game hasn't been released yet, I personally do not know.--RedWizard98 (talk) 23:21, October 8, 2020 (UTC)

The films are higher canon than the games. However, if I remember correctly, in the books and on Pottermore, it is not above the snowline, so the fim's depiction is not canon either.

About Hogsmeade's founding: We know that Hengist attended Hogwarts from Pottermore (highest canon) and that Hogwarts was founded around thousand years ago, exact date unknown. The question is: Would around 1078 years at least still be considered around 1.000 years ago? I personally would say yes, so this date would be canon. Or... I think the film's timeline placed the school's founding in the latr 900s, which would make it non-canon. Let's add the 914 date to the Behind the Scenes section for all of this reasons. --Rodolphus (talk) 08:35, October 9, 2020 (UTC)

The books never addressed the climate in Hogsmeade that I can remember, I always took that to mean it was the same as the school. If it rains at Hogwarts, it rains in Hogsmeade since it's walking distance away. The thing about the snow line was a creative liberty by the people who made the movies, I think the video game might actually be closer to the book. Surely, if there was always snowy in Hogsmeade in the books, it'd be mentioned somehow. Tfoc (talk) 12:58, October 9, 2020 (UTC)
