Industrial Revolution

Throughout the revolution, Britain was continuously still at war. The industry relied on the army and navy to have all weapons ready to serve. Rockets, machine guns, submarines and camoflague were just a few of the many used, All of these still reflect the way we fight today.

Inventions such as the steam engine and production line were quick ways to become wealthy and also created a steady growing labour force that led to the creation of banks and offices.

War Machine

By the 18th century industrialisation was taking over the country and the huge growth in production, supply and demand started a revolution in the transportation of the country's goods and its people, through roads, canals and the steam engine. At this time, the first civil engineers came to change the waterlogged, muddy and rough roads into hard-wearing, smooth and water-resistant surfaces.

City Living

Up until the mid 18th century, you had a better chance of survival if you chose not to visit a doctor. But the Industrial Revolution brought the hope that technology and progress might create a world without disease and suffering. Along the way we meet bright sparks like Ignaz Semmelweis, who suggested that washing your hands might be a good idea after an autopsy and Rene Hyacinthe Laennec, whose prudishness helped him invent modern diagnosis with the enduring symbol by which we still recognise the modern doctor: the stethoscope.

The Industrial Revolution

John Spilsbury took the world and tore it up. He had created the first jigsaw puzzle. Desire grew to capitilize the worlds resources. He came up with a way to immitate foreign imported resources.

Material World

Rush hour, our work hours were caused mainly by the events of the Industrial Revolution.

Prior to the industrial revolution, the day to day lives of Britain people had changed. Homes were largely rural and functional, and the idea of decorative and comfortable surroundings, along with home 'entertainment', was the reserve of a handful of the privileged nobility. Also introduced the new member of society- the middle class people.
