[HCG30-04] Contribution of archaeomagnetism to archaeology and cultural property science
Keywords:Archaeomagnetism, Archaeology, Cultural Property Science
Archaeomagnetism is used for the secular variation of the magnetic field, chronology, history of heating, and others. In Japan, especially, a lot of archaeodirection studies to the floors of old kilns and furnaces were conducted, so that the detailed models of the field variations have been produced. Here we introduce the studies on archaeomagnetism in Japan and discuss the potential for the application to the archaeological sciences.
