The Anglo-Saxon system of units

The Anglo-Saxon system of units is a collection of measurement units distinct from the metric system, which is currently used as the primary unit of measurement in the United States, the United Kingdom (formerly), and some other countries and territories connected to these two, such as Puerto Rico, a Commonwealth of the United States.
