›› Definition: Carucate

The carucate was both a unit of assessment and a peasant landholding unit found in most of the Danelaw counties. The word derives from caruca, Latin for a plough. In the Domesday Book the carucate was a nominal 120 acres (490,000 m²), based on the area a plough team could till in a year. It is equivalent to the hide, the measurement of land for tax assessment used outside Danelaw counties. A quarter of a hide was known as a virgate.
