I think the 1990's, as they don't seem to mention computer games, computers in general [i.e library] and mobile phones... so it could be before the 1990's as well Neutral

Does it not mention the year in the book then?
Actually thinking about it not many books do you just sort of assume it's now, unless it's really obviously not.

I think it's weird they don't have computers, phones etc, so that's why I was thinking they're earlier than we presume, especially as she probably was thinking of writing these books in 1970's/1980's so might be what she had in mind when finally writing them.

Who knows! Smile

But at the same time, anything wizard-related in HP doesn't include cellphones and computers... it's like they're living (don't wanna make anyone mad, just a statement) back in Middle Ages... so apart from when Harry is at home and those small scenes... I think it's normal we don't see any technologies from late 90's and 00's

"The official timeline is found in a few instances of the series. One of these, which takes place in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, is set in Harry’s second year at Hogwarts. During the Halloween celebrations at the school, a long dead ghost called Nearly Headless Nick celebrates the anniversary of his death, which took place on a long ago 31 October, with a "five hundredth deathday" party. A central feature of this party is an "enormous grey cake in the shape of a tombstone", stating "Sir Nicholas de Mimsy-Porpington (the real name of Nearly Headless Nick) died 31st October 1492". Thus, Rowling sets the date on which the event takes place in the book as 31 October 1992.[5] This means that Harry became a student at Hogwarts in 1991,[6] and so must have been born in 1980, since his 11th birthday occurs at the beginning of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone the summer before he becomes a Hogwarts student."

"It is also shown in the seventh book, when it is shown that Harry's parents died in 1981, when he was one year old."

We have our answer Very Happy
