Transcript of Industrial Revolution
The Industrial Revolution first began in Great Britain.
It started here because they had the Agricultural Revolution going for them.
They had a good supply of important mineral resources like coal and iron ore.
Also had ready supply of capital for investment.
Britain already had markets where they could sell goods.
The cotton factory invented the first modern factory.
Used the flying shuttle so weavers could double their output.
This created a shortage for yarn, but thankfully James Hargreaves invented the spinning Jenny.
Large resources of Iron ore.
New ways of smelting iron began to produce cast iron using something called courke that was made by burning coal.
Finally in the 1780's, they began producing high quality shit called wrought iron.
Something we all know and see is industrial factory's.
This is where all the machines are placed to produce the goods.
The owners couldn't afford for machines to be stopped so people were working constantly and had to work in rotating shifts.
Their exports had dramatically increased in the last year.
Could easily export to anywhere in the world thanks to their marine.
