What was the Industrial Revolution?

 Q:   Ask a Question about What was the Industrial Revolution?       
What was the Industrial Revolution? Back in the early 1700s, Britain was still a largely agricultural nation.The few manufactured goods were made in small workshops or at home. As a result of Britain's world trading, the cotton industry developed and everything changed.
At first water power was used to drive spinning and weaving machines, and factories and mills were set up.
New towns were built to provide homes for these workers. Steam engines were adapted to provide power to factories.

The railways and canal system were developed.The other key development was the smelting of iron using coke rather than wood. Britain was able to exploit the raw materials from her overseas empire to become one of the world's most prosperous industrial nations.
