Golub is right: According to Dicc. de Regionalismos de la


Explanation:
Lengua Española:

tahúlla (accent in the ú): Almería, Granada y Murcia. Medida de superficie agraria (11.18 áreas)

área = are = 100 sq. meters; 1076.3910 sq. feet, 119.6000 sq. yards, 0.02471 acre (see Http://www.unc.edu/~rowlett/units/dictA.html#are

the "octava" I imagine it refers to 1/8 of an are.

Good luck! Maria ;o)

Just a note on "middle ages" and the metric system --


Explanation:
The metric system (meters, grams, liters, etc.), whose measurements of distance are based on decimal divisions of the distance between the earth's equator and its poles, is one of the more durable bequests of the French Revolution (1789-1793).

Hence, meters would hardly have existed _per se_ as a unit of measurement in the Middle Ages, which are generally considered to have lasted from about the year 1100 to the year 1450 or so, having been preceded by the Dark Ages (from the fall of classical antiquity in the 4th to 6th centuries to about 1100) and followed by the Renaissance (approx. 1450 to 1600).

HC, climbing down from the soapbox...
