Annotation: We show how paleomagnetic declinations from regional measurements or from global magnetic field models can be used in a rather unexpected way: to decode the space orinetation of pyramids in Mesoamerica and China. The arguments are based on our own measurements in situ, on analysis of satellite images and on worldwide paleomagnetic data available to date for relavant time intervals are gathered and presented to claim that many pyramids and other important buildings in Mesoamerica and China were oriented by means of magnetic compass.
