    OldNew

    Cottage industry Factories

  • Several factors = Britain ideal place for IR to start.


Agriculture revolution

Agricultural practices in 18th c

More farmland

good weather

new crops - potato

Improved farming methods

RESULT:

Better food production

More crops at a lower price

Population grew

Agriculture Revolution

Previously

Now


Enclosure movement

Enclosure Movement

  • Better food production = Pop. grows

    • Leads to Enclosure: Taking over & fencing off land

  • Enclosure movement:

    • Peasants forced off land

    • Fewer workers needed

  • RESULT:

    • people moved to towns for work

    • supply of labor


  • Economic conditions

    Economic Conditions

    • Supply of Markets

      • Colonies

      • Easy transportation to markets

      • Increase in pop = increased demand

      • Wealthy people w/$ to spend (capital)

    • RESULT:

      • Many markets to sell goods

      • Change from “cottage industry” to factories


    Resources

    Resources

    • Factors of Production

      • Resources needed to produce goods

        • Land (natural resources)

          • Coal & iron ore

            • manufacturing

            • Steam engines -coal

        • Labor

          • Workers (plenty Ag Rev)

            • Mine coal & run machines

        • Capital

          • Money

          • Factories & Machines

    • RESULT:

      • Britain had supply & made money

      • Money to invest in machines and factories


    Changes to the textile industry

    Changesto the Textile Industry

    • Factories

      • Developed b/c new machinery too big for home

      • Located near water sources for power


    Inventions in the textile industry

    Inventions in the Textile Industry

    • Flying Shuttle:

      • increased weaving production

    • Spinning Jenny:

      • spun multiple threads at same time

    • Power loom:

      • mechanized loom powered made operation completely automatic

    • Water frame:

      • waterpower to increase spinning


    Transportation revolution

    TransportationRevolution

    • Macadam Roads

      • John Macadam

      • Large rocks for drainage

      • Layer of smooth crushed rock on top

      • Heavy wagons could travel in the rain

    • Other new transportation

      • Canals to connect rivers

      • Stronger bridges


    Transportation new technology

    Transportation: New Technology

    • James Watt

      • Steam engine

      • Key power source

      • An energy revolution

        • Coal to power steam engine

  • Steam Locomotive and Railroads

  • Steamboats to travel the waterways


  • Changing history

    Changing History

    • The IR was a long, slow process

      • Simple tools complex machines.

      • New energy sources human and animal power.

    Changes in europe

    Main Idea: Industrialization caused many

    changes in Europe

    What were your predictions for change?

    Industrial Classes form

    Living conditions

    • Created jobs

    • Nation wealthier

    • Progress in technology
