The word furlong use to refer to the length of a furrow an oxen or team of oxen could plough  in a field without a rest.

An acre was the area a man with one ox could plough in a day and was one furlong long and one tenth furlong wide. 22 yds or one tenth furlong is called a chain. So an acre is 1 furlong x 1 chain

A furlong is 220 yds.  70 yds is approximately 0.3 of a furlong
