An Archaeomagnetic Study of a Roman Bath in Southern France

Abstract : Absolute Thellier–Thellier archaeointensity determinations were conducted on 137 tiles and sedimentary blocks from five different structures from the ‘Site de la Molère’, southern France, to constrain the archaeological interpretation of a relative age difference between structures and add new data to the French secular variation database. We present 89 new archaeointensity and 20 new directional results, with averages of 57 (±8) μT in the second century ad and 68 (±7) μT in the third century ad. The overall data trend is consistent with the limited available data, indicating rapidly increasing field intensity from the second to the third century ad.
