Abstract

Palaeomagnetic dating and environmental magnetism methods have experienced 150 and 60 years of development, respectively. They have been widely used as alternative tools for age estimation and palaeoenvironmental reconstruction, including in palaeontological and archaeological research. Their potential, however, is still largely neglected in palaeontological and archaeological research in Indonesia. This thesis will show that environmental magnetism and palaeomagnetic dating can make significant contributions in resolving archaeological questions in tropical settings.
