There were many advances and incidents that led to the Industrial Revolution, and it’s hard to imagine the modern world without it. Basically, the main reason why people have the advanced technology is because of great changes made in the history at that time. People managed to discover faster and better methods to produce different goods, thus boosting their economy. This can be said mainly for French and British as these countries were industrializing very fast.
However, students need to understand that the Industrial Revolution didn’t happen overnight so that there are many historical events that resulted in it. Pay attention to the influence of the agricultural revolution and the earlier events that resulted in the industrial one. It’s also important to discuss why Britain played a huge role in this historical event.
When it comes to the medieval ages, people lived in their total darkness because they were not even aware of what was going on in other parts of the world. The good news is that this period was followed by the renaissance, and then people experienced the agricultural revolution in England. This is what had a major impact on the following revolution in the industry. For instance, many people made it possible, including Charles Townshend because he suggested the necessity to rotate crops on a yearly basis to enrich the soil with essential nutrients and vitamins.
Don’t forget that America introduced potatoes to Britain, and there were innovative farm machines invented. Another interesting example is the seed drill developed by Jethro Tull, and it could plant seeds in a straight row so that farmers started to use new iron plows instead of the wooden ones that were quite ineffective. These advancements encouraged rich people to farm the larger amount of land, and it was a great benefit for the agricultural revolution. It had many benefits, such as improving people’s diet and health, thus resulting in their increased population with a demand of healthy food products, employment, clothes, etc.
In conclusion, the Industrial Revolution started in the 1800s, but it couldn’t be possible without the industrial revolution. The main reason is that it opened a way to certain inventions that decreased the need for people’s power. They went into major cities looking for new jobs, and this is what resulted in the process called urbanization.
