THE INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION

 

The Industrial Revolution marked a major turning point in human history, influencing almost every aspect of daily life. During the 18th and 19th centuries there were major changes in agriculture, manufacturing, mining, transportation and technology. There were also profound changes to the socioeconomic and cultural conditions of the times. Beginning in Great Britain, there was a transition from a manual labour-based economy towards machine-based manufacturing.  This revolution then spread throughout Europe, North America, and eventually the world.
