I've learned that in medieval times most peasants shared resources such as oxen in order to have at least a team, if not 4, to plow with. But for my story, I want the family to be more isolated. This is a society of my own invention so I'm throwing out certain feudal/serf traditions.
If there was such a thing as plowing with only one ox, what would the harness have looked like? More like a collar rather than a yoke?
