      The Industrial Revolution Begins - for iPhone and iPod Touch Dawn of the Industrial Age For thousands of years following the rise of civilization, most people lived and worked in small farming villages. However, a chain of events set in motion in the mids changed that way of life for all time. Today, we call.   By the end of the parliamentary enclosures of the 18th century and the beginning of the Industrial Revolution, the impoverished masses that even Ashton calls “the legion of the lost” became what he describes euphemistically but tellingly as “efficient, if over-regimented, members of an industrial army.” (Ashton , 46).

      Parliament began passing laws allowing enclosures to yeomen, people who bought up much land to maintain and share-crop the land with other farmers. Fewer land owners led to fewer farmers needed forceing many families to move into the city in search of jobs. It wasn't until that enclosure .   Students will identify key figures in the industrial revolution. Students will recognize key inventions and ideas that fueled the industrial revolution. Students will note how life became easier due to changes in technology. Students will work collaboratively to survive in the pre-industrial revolution, establishing a farm on their land.

        From until the beginning of the First World War in , a period of great social, political and economic upheaval unfolded across the globe. . The enclosure movement kicked rural proletarians off the rural land, thus, there are more people who are able to work in the industries, which will then contribute to England's industrial revolution.
