Xylomancy is a subject that was taught at least once in the North Tower at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. It involves the "often overlooked" method of divination which relied upon twigs.
Behind the scenes
- This class is seen on Harry Potter's class timetable in the film adaptation of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. However, this cannot be considered canon, as it is not listed among his subjects in the book, and he would not take Divination until his third year.
- Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (film) (Seen on timetable)
- Harry Potter Page to Screen: The Complete Filmmaking Journey (Seen on timetable)
- Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (film) (Mentioned in a newspaper)
