Furlong

What does furlong refers to?

A furlong is a measure of distance in imperial units and U.S. customary units equal to one eighth of a mile. Each furrow ran the length of a 40 × 4-rod acre, or 660 modern feet,220 yards, 40 rods, or 10 chains.

It is an old English unit of length, based on the length of an average plowed furrow (hence “furrow-long,” or furlong) in the English open- or common-field system. The furlong was historically viewed as being equivalent to the Roman stade (stadium), which in turn derived from the Greek system.
