Ridge and furrow is an archaeological pattern of ridges (Medieval Latin sliones) and troughs created by a system of ploughing used in Europe during the Middle Ages, typical of the open field system. It is also known as rig (or rigg) and furrow, mostly in the North East of England and in Scotland. Ridge and furrow topography was a result of ploughing with non-reversible ploughs on the same strip of land each year. It is visible on land that was ploughed in the Middle Ages, but which has not been ploughed since then. No actively ploughed ridge and furrow survives.

  • Ridge and furrow is an archaeological pattern of ridges (Medieval Latin sliones) and troughs created by a system of ploughing used in Europe during the Middle Ages, typical of the open field system. It is also known as rig (or rigg) and furrow, mostly in the North East of England and in Scotland. The earliest examples date to the immediate post-Roman period and the system was used until the 17th century in some areas, as long as the open field system survived. Surviving ridge and furrow topography is found in Great Britain, Ireland and elsewhere in Europe. The surviving ridges are parallel, ranging from 3 to 22 yards (3 to 20 m) apart and up to 24 inches (61 cm) tall – they were much taller when in use. Older examples are often curved. Ridge and furrow topography was a result of ploughing with non-reversible ploughs on the same strip of land each year. It is visible on land that was ploughed in the Middle Ages, but which has not been ploughed since then. No actively ploughed ridge and furrow survives. The ridges or lands became units in landholding, in assessing the work of the ploughman and in reaping in autumn. (en)

  • Il termine ridge e furrow - in lingua inglese ridge and furrow (lett. porca e solco) - è spesso usato dagli archeologi ed altri (più che altro nell'ambito delle Isole Britanniche) per descrivere la forma di tumuli (peaks) e canali (troughs) creatisi nel campo da un sistema di aratura utilizzato in Europa durante il Medioevo. I primi esempi risalgono al periodo post-romano e il metodo sopravvisse fino al XVII secolo in alcune aree. Questo tipo di aratura viene anche trovato in Irlanda e altrove in Europa. La topografia creata dalla porca e solco fu il risultato di un'aratura sulla stessa striscia di terra ogni anno con aratri non-reversibili (cioè aratri a singolo vomere). (it)
