As for the title, why don't we go for 'Climate during the past two millennia', still with the empahsis on the last one. This way it won't be too different from the one we gave to RoG. The first millennia will be semi quantitative and would just be smoothed versions - simple averages of what we can get, scaled against NH extended summers. We should probably put less emphasis on the MWP as Ray/Henry/Malcolm are working on that and more on the LIA in discussion - thinking aloud here. We could ask Ray for a draft in a couple of months and exchange bits of text. I did think of Climate during the Christian Era !!! but that was going too far !
