ⓘ Medieval Warm Period

The Medieval Warm Period or Medieval Climate Optimum was a time of unusually warm climate in the North Atlantic region. It was not a planet-wide phenomena. It lasted from about the tenth century to about the fourteenth century. In discussions of global warming this period is often mentioned.

Some refer to the event as the Medieval Climatic Anomaly because this term emphasizes that effects other than temperature were important.
