It was first recorded 180 years ago, and the weakening raised questions about what it means for the welfare of the biosphere.
(Albert Einstein considered the origin of Earth's magnetic field one of the five most important unsolved problems in physics.) "The field strength of the 8th century BCE corroborates previous observations of our group, first published in 2009, of an unusually strong field in the early Iron Age.

(resource) Archaeomagnetic dating is based on the use of known secular variation in the three components of the Earth’s magnetic field (Horizontal, Vertical and Intensity) to date burnt features that contain the fossil direction of these components of the field.
Apparently, this is not a unique phenomenon -- the field has often weakened and recovered over the last millennia." "We can gain a clearer picture of the planet and its inner structure by better understanding proxies like the magnetic field, which reaches more than 1,800 miles deep into the liquid part of Earth's outer core," Ben-Yosef observed in a news release from Tel Aviv University.
The new research is based on a set of 67 ancient, heat-impacted Judean ceramic storage jar handles, which bear royal stamp impressions from the 8th to 2nd century BCE, providing accurate age estimates.
It draws on illuminated manuscripts, early printed books, tapestries, paintings, and sculpture from museums and libraries around the world.
“Symbolism and metaphors are buried in the art of fashion,” says Roger Wieck, the editor of Illuminating Fashion and curator of the accompanying exhibition at the Morgan Library.
Not only can this fully illustrated volume be used as guide to a fuller understanding of the works of art, it can also help date an undated work; reveal the shape and structure of actual garments; and open up a picture’s iconographic and social content.
