HOW DID MEN, WOMEN AND CHILDREN FARE IN THE DAWN OF MODERN CAPITALISM? WHAT EFFECT DID NEW WAYS OF WORK HAVE ON THE BODIES OF WORKERS? WHAT EDUCATION DID THE WORKERS RECEIVE? WHEN AND HOW DID THEY GET LEGAL PROTECTION?
These are some of the subjects being discussed at the 5th Arkwright Society’s Industrial Revolution Conference taking place on Saturday 29 September 2018. Leading experts on the Industrial Revolution will join us at the iconic Cromford Mills to give their views on the time when Britain changed dramatically, and what this meant for all workers.
