When a land is being surveyed, surveyors are using specialized tools and equipments so that owners will know how wide, how, far, how big or even how small the land they have is that is why there are lots of land surveying tools created for such a purpose. Before the Middle Age, there were changes in the way land surveys are done that is why land surveying tools became out of fashion yet, upon the beginning of the Middle Age, these tools were once again brought back to existence and were used since then. During the Middle Age, the desire to hold a land was once again felt by the people of this day, aside from the fact that they want to know how much they own and want to protect the land that they own from others, hence, land surveying equipments were once again brought to existence.
