There are many magical artifacts that Harry finds/utilizes throughout his years at Hogwarts, all seemingly created by powerful or very ingenious wizards/witches/goblins. Some examples:
- The Marauder's Map
- The Deathly Hallows
- The Sorcerer's Stone
- The Sword of Gryffindor
Were any similarly powerful artifacts created during Harry Potter's time? Or are the powerful or ingenious wizards that create such long-lasting and useful artifacts all a thing of the past? I know that there has been some strong and unique magic used, but I can't remember any significant magical artifacts having been created. They all just seem to have appeared to Harry as something from the past he must utilize.
