Toby’s Paragraph about what started the Industrial Revolution.

what started the Industrial Revolution?

I think that the thing that really started the Industrial revolution was the boost in agriculture. With the new crop rotation and fertilisers there was a lot more food to go around that meant less work  and not needing as many people working on the farms.

So people could go and do other things like building inventions and more food meant less people dying of famine so those extra people could do more jobs as well as inventing things like the steam engine, build a mine to get coal, build an iron smeltery to smelt iron, build a railway or build useful machines.
