Material Detail



This is not so much a unified website as a number of interlinked BBC history sites dealing with different aspects of industrialization --primarily in Britain (where it is spelled as "industrialisation"). The site is thus more conducive to exploring various themes in the history of industrialization than to obtaining a systematic overview of the topic. And the themes deal more with the technical and material side of industrialization than with its economic and social effects. But the site contains many interactive animations and game-like features that would hold the interest of a younger audience.
