The Industrial Revolution is the major change in the history of Europe. It is so because of a great amount of technological advances which helped the revolution move along and the progress which had never been before. It was the time when everything concerning the house holding and everyday affairs was developed. When we speak about technological advances we mean coal and iron, the discoveries of which led to many inventions that changed the life of society cardinally during the period of Industrial Revolution.
The domestic system was till the time when the Industrial Revolution took place in the countries of Europe. It is about the simplest and the most needed things which the families had to do to survive. For example, all the fathers of that time must teach their daughters to knit blankets and make brooms. Every year fathers used to sell them and to get the material to make them in the next year. Everything was changed when the technological advances took place in Europe during the Industrial Revolution.
Let’s remain that the main things which were the greatest changes of this revolutions were coal and iron. There was the major breakthrough of these two things in 1709 in Coalbrookedale. Abraham Darby, the industrialist from England successfully used the coke. Coke was the high carbon which was converted of the coal. Abraham Darby used the coke to produce iron from the iron ore. Usage of coke did away the need for charcoal, which was more expensive for few times. 1784 was the year when Henry Cort from England invented some new ways of rolling the raw iron. It was the finishing process which shapes iron into the shapes and forms which are the most appropriate and desirable.
A big part of the Revolution also was the advances in metal working. Specialists and scientists let the iron be used in some new ways, for example, for the building machinery. People also began to use iron for the development of railroads, which were the more than proper improvement in the sphere of transportation. The developed and perfect transportation helped the society to be bigger and better. Such kinds of reforms of the Industrial Revolution were established together with the transformations in the British economy. The textile industry was one of the largest industries which happened during the Industrial Revolution in Europe. So it can be said that those changes were the first steps for the technologies which we have and use now.
The Industrial Revolution is the major change in the history of Europe. It is so because of a great amount of technological advances which helped the revolution move along and the progress which had never been before. It was the time when everything concerning the house holding and everyday affairs was developed.
