Abstract

Data on the geomagnetic field intensity in the first millennium BC and the 8th–10th centuries AD are obtained from the study of materials from the El Molon archaeological monument (Spain). A 75-yr averaged curve of the variation in the geomagnetic field intensity in the area of the zero meridian over the last three millennia is constructed from a set of new and previously obtained data on the geomagnetic intensity variations in Spain and France. The field intensity smoothly decreases in the time interval studied, and variations a few centuries long are superimposed on this trend. Unlike the present-day relationship, the average level of the geomagnetic field intensity in Spain in the first millennium BC was higher than in the Caucasus.
