All samples behaved similarly to incremental demagnetization with very little sign of low coercivity (viscous) components; one clear vector was present in most samples (TABLE 1 & FIGURE 2b) although most isolated vectors did not include the initial natural remanence determination.
All behaved similarly, showing high stability and mostly revealing a single vector, although the initial natural remanence was only included within the vector for vessel CA4, suggesting that a very low blocking component (<50[degrees]C) was removed before the characteristic vector was isolated which was then present to at least 600[degrees]C, with no evidence of any other vectors (FIGURE 2a).
When each pot was originally fired, it would have acquired a thermal remanence with a declination and inclination the same as the geomagnetic field within the kiln.
