The Mystery of the Malfoy Manor (or What Lies Above the Secret Chamber under the Drawing Room Floor?)
Lady Narcissa  

The details about the Malfoy Manor were few and far between in the first six Harry Potter books. We knew it was in Wiltshire and that there was a secret chamber under the drawing room floor but it remained an elusive location until we finally got a peak into the Manor in the final Harry Potter book. But even then, there is much left to the reader's imagination. What else is there in the Manor outside the drawing room and the secret chamber beneath? After an exploration of manor houses in England and J.K. Rowling's own descriptions of the Malfoy's, this presentation will look at how fandom has filled in the missing details of the Manor through stories and art. I will also talk about the miniature version of the Malfoy Manor that I am currently building.

Lady Narcissa has been curious about the Malfoy Manor since she read "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets" and has been working on a miniature reproduction of it since 2004. Currently a lawyer in Chicago, she also has a Masters of Architecture and lectures on British history, law, and architecture.
