Causes industrialisation
  • Growth of the population due to better agriculture
  • Increasing demand for cotton (and thus the need to build extra   factories)
  • Farmes lost their jobs and moved to the city to work in the factories =   urbanisation
  • European countries had access to raw materials from their colonies   (cotton, coal and iron)

1. What does the invention do?
2. Who invented it?
3. Why was this invention so important during the Industrial Revolution?
or any other information you deem important
