Thellier palaeointensity analyses were carried out on samples from three quartz porphyry intrusions located within the western part of the Bohemian Massif close to the German-Czech Republic border. These intrusives have been dated at 280-275 Ma. which places them in the main part of the Permo-Carboniferous (Kiaman) Reversed Superchron (P-CRS). This age is consistent with the mean characteristic remanence direction calculated at D/I=204°/- 1°, giving a VGP at 36° N, 341° E. Palaeointensity values range from 6.6 μT to 22.1 μT, with a mean value of 12.0 ± 1.3 μT, which has a corresponding VDM value of (3.0 ± 1.2) × 1022 A m2. This suggests that the geomagnetic field strength recorded by the quartz porphyries is only 37 per cent of the current value, supporting recent studies that report a field strength of between 25 and 40 per cent of the present-day value during the P-CRS.
