Can't say. There are some early recipes for sugar cooking (a kind of sesame 
brittle is described in the Mappae Clavicula, and milk sweets in the Liber 
Trotulae), but it's impossible for me to say whether these involve 
caramelisation or not. I guess the recipe in Trotula could be interpreted as 
modern caramel, but it might equally well be simply boiled sweets.
