two of most significant social consequences of the Industrial Revolution.

  • history -

    One is that people started working in factories, rather than in their homes.

    What other consequence can you think of?

  • history -

    This is one i have but wasn't sure if it was correct.


    Small villages, working either in agriculture or as skilled craftsmen.  They lived and often worked as a family, doing everything by hand.  Three quarters of Britain’s population lived in the countryside, and farming was predominant occupation.  With the advent of industrialization, however, everything changed.  The new enclosure laws which required that all grazing grounds be fenced in at the owner’s expense had left many poor farmers bankrupt.

    I'm not sure the enclosure laws was one of the major consequences.

    Check your book about children and women laborers.
