[HCG30-P09] What can archaeomagnetism contribute for Southeast Asian archeology?
Keywords:Archaeomagnetism, Southeast Asian Archaeology, Vietnam, Sa Huynh Culture, Kingdom of Champa
On these backgrounds, we are currently planning a research to construct a dataset combining archaeology, art history and archaeomagnetism, then to create a foundation for applying to the elucidation of cultural and social structural changes in Southeast Asia, and finally to reapply the results to geoscientific research. Specifically, we plan to study the following three themes; (1) A more detailed description of the history of two cultures from the 4th century BC to the 15th century AD in central Vietnam (Sa Huynh Culture and the culture of the kingdom of Champa), (2) Age estimation of an unknown archaeological site from southern Vietnam, and (3) Construction of a secular variation curve of geomagnetic two components (intensity and inclination) in Vietnam.
In this presentation, we will introduce the outline of this research project and consider its potential.
