The Industrial Revolution changed our world in a way that few other events have: it changed the landscape with heavy industries using the plentiful supply of fossil fuels. It changed our lifestyles as urban life took over from rural. Wages brought freedom of travel and social mob...ility to many. The world of 1700 looked vastly different to that of 1800 as the foundations for the modern age were laid. Great Inventions of the Industrial Revolution celebrates the major inventions and projects of the period 1700-1860, a period when science and technology began to establish its role in modern life.
