ArcheoInt is an Excel file containing a compilation of archeomagnetic intensity data covering the past 10 millennia. This compilation upgrades that of Korte et al (2005) for intensity data used in the cals7k.2 field model. It contains 3648 intensity (with VDM and/or VADM) data and any associated directional data, along with information about their reliability, data location and provenance, material and sample descriptions, dating, and experimental methods. Four distinct spreadsheets deal with data, references, controlled vocabularies and the compilation design. 87% of the data come from archeological artefacts, and the remainder are derived from volcanic products.
