The Industrial revolution is the start of the great changes that happened in our history. It started 18th to the 19th century in Great Britain. A more modern world had begun.

Difference between Medieval and Industrial Revolution…..

Spread of Factories

In Medieval the materials commonly use are :

  • Bricks

The Industrial Revolution brought severe consequences to society.Factory owners, needing cheap, unskilled labor, profited greatly by using children and women to run the machines. the Kids had no free time to play or to fix their selves and earned low wages. Some got sick and died because of the toxic fumes, while others were severely injured and sometimes killed working at the dangerous machines in factories.

The Industrial Revolution marks a major turning point in human history.

Obviously, the Industrial Revolution had both good and bad sides.
