These results agreed to a large degree with transcontinental models which W. Petrascheck was developing with the comparison of ore deposit genetic findings. Little traffic, a distance of more than 3 km from the railway line as well as a stable grid, data line and water supply offered almost ideal conditions for highly sensitive magnetic field measurements.

Résultats sur la demeure protobyzantine DOM5 (en particulier : phasage du chantier d'agrandissement du triklinos ; destruction par un seîsme en 620 ; environnement de la demeure) et sur les édifices qui l'ont précédé (BAT25, d'époque archaïque, et BAT24, en usage du IVe s. Archaeomagnetism, the study of the Earth’s ancient magnetic field as recorded by heat-treated anthropogenic objects, is a crucial source of paleomagnetic data for modeling the Earth’s geomagnetic field behavior during the Quaternary....
While Andy has been looking at some of the oldest rocks on Earth, some of us have been concentrating on more recent history.
Studying the Earth’s magnetic field by the remanent magnetisation of archaeological artefacts is called .
Not only can we use this information to see how the Earth’s magnetic field has evolved over time, once we have a good idea of how the field changed it is possible to give a date for the burning of the feature. Here are a couple of sites that we looked at recently.
Eddisbury hillfort in Cheshire was being excavated as part of the Habitats and Hillforts project being run by Cheshire West and Chester Council.
