Description
Employing temperature data obtained from 44 boreholes spread throughout a roughly rectangular strip of land along the eastern slope of the Ural Mountains (~50-58°N, ~57-62°E), Golovanova et al. calculated that "the ground surface temperature at the maximum of the Medieval Warm Period in [AD] 1100-1200 was approximately the same as the present temperature."
