Carucate, in Anglo-Saxon and medieval England, the amount of land a team of eight oxen could plough in a season, at first varying in size from 80 to 140 acres, according to the district; afterwards fixed at 100 acres. Carucage, a tax of 5s. per carucate was imposed by Richard I. in 1198. John reduced it to 3s.
