Plough-team


Plough-team
Two men worked the eight-ox plough-team: one guided the plough itself, and was known as the *conductor, the other, the *fugator, drove the oxen and also tended them during the year. There is a particularly good illustration of such a team and its two men in the Luttrell Psalter (fol. 170r). [fugator < Lat. fugo = to drive; conductor = a guide, leader]
