What Was the Plowman like in the Medieval Period?

Answer

A plowman in the middle age era was a man who tilled his land; an acre a day was all he could achieve in those days, and he used oxen, not horses. When his lord called him to fight, he had to go, and bring his own weapons, too. In the main, they would have brought scythes and pitchforks to battle with the enemy.
