The distribution of meteors streams throughout a year from the 5th to the 15th century is investigated, based on a new compilation of meteor records in the diverse European Medieval sources. The records of meteor showers and storms in the chronicles of Korea, Japan, China and Arab have also been considered, and compare their appearance dates with those of showers obtained above, as well as with modern observations. We found that the three sets of data are in agreement with each other, the Perseids, Leonids, and Lyrids being best represented.
