Abstract
In Mexico, the Teoloyucan Geomagnetic Observatory has been operating regularly since 1914, providing an almost continuous record of the secular variation of the Earth's magnetic field. This work offers a synthesis of the geomagnetic record obtained in Mexico for more than one hundred years. With these data, we propose a regional secular variation curve which, given its technical quality, is proposed as an archaeomagnetic dating tool for this time interval.

Keywords
Geomagnetic record; secular variation; archaeomagnetic dating; Mexico.
