Yes, the Medieval Warm Period was warmer than the modern period and it was global (and probably bounced around about as much as modern climate, despite being warmer. )
A peer-reviewed study documents the extremely warm temperatures of the Medieval Period that occurred in the California Sierra Nevada range. Scientists, working with dead tree trunks located above the current treeline, affirm California’s Medieval extreme warm temperature history, which still remains unprecedented.
The California Medieval Warming Remains Unprecedented: 3.0°C Hotter Than Modern Global Warming
The ideal, of course, would be for the world to be a couple of degrees warmer, for CO2 levels to be significantly higher, and for market forces to cause Mr. Gore’s” investments” to decline greatly in value.

Never mind that hundreds of peer-reviewed papers have shown that the Medieval Warm Period (MWP) was warmer than the present period, and word-wide, certain groups of people have scoffed at the idea that there is nothing unusual about modern times, climate-wise.
Now, even Jones, Briffa, and other unimpeachable sources say that it was warmer back then (at least in Greenland.) See: The Medieval Warm Period in Greenland
