The carucate was named for the carruca heavy plough that began to appear in England in the 9th century, introduced by the Viking invasions of England.
It was also known as a ploughland or plough (Old English; plogesland, 'plough's land') in the Danelaw and usually, but not always,
excluded the land's suitability for winter vegetables and desirability to remain fallow in crop rotation. The tax levied on each carucate came to be known as 'carucage'.
Though a carucate might nominally be regarded as an area of 120 acres (49 hectares), and can usefully be equated to certain definitions of the hide,
its variation over time and depending on soil and fertility makes its actual figure wildly variable.
The Danelaw carucates were subdivided into eighths: oxgangs or bovates based on the area a single ox could till in a year.
