Old Scandinavian weight unit "våg"

Postby KristinB » Sun Dec 16, 2012 8:01 pm

Is there an English or other non-Scandinavian term for the old Norwegian / Scandinavian weight unit "våg"? It's defined as being 36 pounds: "gammel vektenhet for tyngre varer 1 v- = 36 pund = ca 18 kg" [old weight unit for heavier items 1 v = 36 pounds = approx. 18 kg]

Thanks for any help,
