Definitions for "Archaeomagnetic dating"
sometimes referred to as paleomagnetic dating. it is based on the fact that changes in the earth's magnetic field over time can be recorded as remnant magnetism in materials such as baked clay structure (ovens, kilns, and hearths).
a method of dabng based on the wandering of the earth's magnetic north pole. When the clay-lined hearths used by the Hohokam were heated, minute magnetic particles in the clays realigned themselves with magnetic north. Through a process that involves careful testing of collected samples of hearths with a magnetometer, the date of a given hearth can be determined.
A dating technique based on the principle that the direction and intensity of the Earth's magnetic field vary through time.
