Actually the warmest period "recorded" was during medieval times, but earth was warmed than that during the Pilocenic epoch.
Ice Core Data Confirms Medieval Period Warmer Than Present

New ice core data indicates that natural climate variations caused huge temperature variations in the past. A recent study finds:
1.The Medieval Warming period had temperatures that approached 1°C higher than current temperatures, in spite of lower CO2 levels.
2.The Minoan Warming period had temperatures that possibly exceeded current temperatures by 1°C, in spite of lower CO2 levels.
3.The previous interglacial period, approximately 130,000 years ago, had temperatures in excess of 4°C versus current temperatures, in spite of lower CO2 levels.
