Subject:        Carts and Carters

I'm interested in the carters--the teamsters of their day--who made
regular runs to London from many of the principal cities and towns in
Elizabethan England. Does anyone know whether these would have been
horse-drawn, or whether they would have used oxen? And would it have
been one animal, or a team?

Thanks for any help.
