This is a story for the techno-geeks.  A team of scientists have been analysing Egyptian mining slag from 3,000 years ago (in what today is Israel).  They have revealed very fast fluctuations in the Earth's magnetic field and that it reached more than twice the expected strength.  It's believed it was a localised effect.

I don't believe the Egyptians would have been aware of the effects.
