Intensity of the Earth’s magnetic field in Greece during the last five millennia: New data from Greek pottery

Dr. Evdokia Tema
Dipartimento di Scienze della Terra, Università degli Studi di Torino

New archaeointensity results have been obtained from the study of four ceramic collections coming from four different archaeological sites in Greece. The ages of the ceramic fragments, based on archaeological constraints and radiocarbon analysis, range from 2200 BC to 565 AD. The new data are reasonably consistent with other available data for the studied region as well as with the SV reference curves for Greece and the South Balkan Peninsula, and the regional and global geomagnetic field models. Combined with previously published data from the area, they confirm that important changes of the Earth’s magnetic field intensity occurred in Greece during the last five millennia. This evidences the need of new reliable and well dated archaeointensity data in order to obtain a robust description of geomagnetic field intensity changes during the last five millennia in this area.
