Magnetism and archaeology

Archaeomagnetic sampling in the Podere Funghi

2009 Joint Assembly
American Geophysical Union
The Meeting of the Americas

24–27 May 2009
Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Metro Toronto Convention Centre, Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

The scientific program can be viewed online.

Yours truly has co-convened the following session for the Geomagnetism and Paleomagnetism section:

Magnetism and Other Geophysical Techniques Applied to Archaeology

Conveners: R Sternberg, Franklin & Marshall College; A Chauvin, Université de Rennes; S Lengyel, Illinois State Museum

Session description: Magnetism is used in archaeology in several ways: archaeomagnetism, or the remanent magnetization of archaeological materials; use of magnetic properties for determining archaeological provenance; magnetic surveying at archaeological sites, and use of magnetic susceptibility on the surface and subsurface at archaeological sites. This session invites submissions on any of these topics, especially involving novel approaches, or the application of other geophysical methods to archaeology.
