I wouldn't think Medieval sugar to be white, so I wonder if powdered brown sugar wouldn't be more authentic.

yep, as previously stated, the "powdered sugar" taht you buy today is full of 
cornstarch, so it yields a very different result.

you can achieve medieval style powdered sugar by taking regular sugar and running it 
in the blender or if you're really crazy, a mortar and pestle ;)

I am curious as to what the grain size of medieval powdered sugar would be...would it 
be like our bakers sugar, or finer?
