  • Period: to

    Slavery in U.S.A

    This was a very difficult period in time in America for african Americans as they were seen as lesser people in society, andwere forced to under go slave work
  • Seed Drill

    Seed Drill
    A seed drill is a sowing device that precisely positions seeds in the soil and then covers them. Before the introduction of the seed drill, seeds were planted by hand. Besides being wasteful, planting was very imprecise and led to a poor distribution of seeds, leading to low productivity. Jethro Tull is widely thought of as having invented the seed drill, though it was though the Chinese and early Summerians had invented them before hand.
  • The Flying Shuttle

    The Flying Shuttle
    The flying shuttle was one of the key developments in the industrialization of weaving. It allowed a single weaver to weave much wider fabrics, and it could be mechanized, allowing for automatic machine looms. It was invented by John Kay. The flying shuttle allowed the textile business to enhace income and be a building block for the future.
  • Agricultural Revolution

    Agricultural Revolution
    The agricultural revolution was a period of transition from the pre-agricultural period characterized by a Paleolithic diet, into an agricultural period characterized by a diet of cultivated foods. It was also a further transition from a living form of agriculture into a more advanced and more productive form of agriculture. It also resulted in further social changes, and some argue worse individual living conditions.
  • Industrial Revolution

    Industrial Revolution
    The Industrial Revolution was the transition to new manufacturing processes from about 1760 to sometime between 1820 and 1840. This transition included going from hand production methods to machines, new chemical manufacturing and iron production processes, improved efficiency of water power, the increasing use of steam power, and the development of machine tools.
  • Establishment of the first European Factory

    Establishment of the first European Factory
    With the estalishment of the first European factory it marked a significant period in time showing how quickly the industrial revolution was taking place around the world. These factories gave many people a fresh start in the big evolvong world. Richard Arkwrigt is credited to being the brains behind the growth of factories. He created the first true european factory at Cromford in England near Derby.
  • Spinny Jenny

    Spinny Jenny
    The spinning jenny is a multi-spindle spinning frame. It was invented in 1764 by James Hargreaves in Stanhill, Oswaldtwistle, Lancashire in England. The spinning jenny reduced the amount of work needed to produce yarn, with a worker able to work eight or more spools at once. The spinning Jenny was time and cost effecient, but it cost many people their jobs.
  • Power Mill (Water Mill)

    Power Mill (Water Mill)
    A power mill or water mill is a mill that uses moving water as its power source. It's a structure that uses a water wheel or water turbine to drive a mechanical process such as milling (grinding), rolling, or hammering. These proccesses are used to create many materialed goods such as flour, lumber, paper and many metal goods. The water mill was a cheap and effective source of power.
  • Steam Engine

    Steam Engine
    A steam engine is a heat engine that performs mechanical work using steam as its working fluid. In 1769 James Watt invented a steam engine that produced continuous rotary motion. Watt's ten-horsepower engines enabled a wide range of manufacturing machinery to be powered. The engines could be sited anywhere that water and coal or wood fuel could be obtained.
  • Cooks discovery of the Terra Nullius

    Cooks discovery of the Terra Nullius
    In 1770 James Cook landed in Botany Bay and claimed the east cost of Australia under the possesion on the British Empire. In these times there were only 3 ways britan could settle in a country 1) If there were no inhabitants of the land 2) Permission to settle by natives 3) Invasion and conquest. Strangley Britan did not follow any of those rules and settled in Austrlia pretending it was an inhabited country. That was the myth of the terra nullius.
  • Decleration of American Independence

    Decleration of American Independence
    The Declaration of American Independence was issued in 1776 July 4th. America's thirteen colonies were at war with great Britan in the 1770's and then they regarded themselves as 13 indendent states and no longer apart of the British Empire. 4th of July is now a long weekend where American's can celebrate their indepnedence.
  • Power Loom

    Power Loom
    A power loom is a mechanised loom powered by a line shaft. The first power loom was designed in 1784 by Edmund Cartwright and first built in 1785. The power loom was less time consuming and more costly efficient. The power loom raised income generoulsy in the textile industry but cut many jobs in the industry.
  • Arrival of first fleet in Botany Bay

    Arrival of first fleet in Botany Bay
    The First Fleet is the name given to the 11 ships which left Great Britain on 13 May 1787 became the first European settlement in Australia. The fleet consisted of two Royal Navy vessels, three store ships and six convict transports, carrying more than 1,000 convicts, marines and seamen, and a vast quantity of goods.
  • Settlement in Sydney

    Settlement in Sydney
    A few days after arrival at Botany Bay the fleet moved to the more suitable Port Jackson where a settlement was established at Sydney Cove on 26 January 1788. This marked a huge day in Australian history as this started a fued between the indigenous and the settlers.
  • Cotton Gin

    Cotton Gin
    A cotton gin is a machine that quickly and easily separates cotton fibers from their seeds, allowing for much greater productivity than manual cotton separation.[2] The fibers are processed into clothing or other cotton goods, and any undamaged seeds may be used to grow more cotton or to produce cottonseed oil and meal.
  • Eli Whitney's discovery of Interchanable Parts

    Eli Whitney's discovery of Interchanable Parts
    Interchangeable parts are parts for an object that are indentical for practical purposes. They are made to specifications that ensure that they are so nearly identical that they will fit into any assembly of the same type. One such part can freely replace another, without any custom fitting (such as filing).
  • Period: to

    Luddites Revolution

    The Luddites were 19th-century English textile artisans who protested against newly developed labour-replacing machinery from 1811 to 1817. The stocking frames, spinning frames and power looms introduced during the Industrial Revolution threatened to replace the artisans with less-skilled, low-wage labourers, leaving them without work.
  • Period: to

    Great Potato Famine

    The Great Famine was a period of mass starvation, disease and emigration in Ireland between 1845 and 1852. This period of time was often refered to as the Irish Potato Famine. It was refered to that because potatos were diseased and more than 2/5's of the population decreased. Approximatley 1 million people died and more than a million emigrated making the populationto decrease by 20-25%.
  • Federtaion of Australia

    Federtaion of Australia
    Australia became an independent nation on 1 January 1901. The British Parliament passed legislation allowing the six Australian colonies to govern in their own right as part of the Commonwealth of Australia. The Commonwealth of Australia was established as a constitutional monarchy. 'Constitutional' because the Commonwealth of Australia was established with a written constitution, and 'monarchy' because Australia's head of state was Queen Victoria.
