  1. Oxgang

    An oxgang or bovate is an old land measurement formerly used in Scotland and England. It averaged around 20 English acres, but was based on land fertility and cultivation, and so could be as low as 15. Skene in Celtic Scotland says: An oxgang is also known as a bovate, from bovata, a medieval Latinisation of the word, derived from the Latin bōs, meaning ox, bullock or cow. Oxen, through the Scottish Gaelic word Damh or Dabh, also provided the root of the land measurement 'Daugh.' In Scotland, 'oxgang' occurs in Oxgangs, a southern suburb of Edinburgh, and in Oxgang, an area of the town of Kirkintilloch.
