The Industrial Revolution Online Course

For family and Social Historians

Every family historian with British ancestry has ancestors whose lives were changed either directly or indirectly because of the Industrial Revolution. It changed the world forever, but why did it occur in Britain first? 

In this five week online course for family historians we will look at why the Industrial Revolution happened in Britain, the experiences of those involved, and how the Industrial Revolution can be researched by family historians seeking to trace and better understand how their ancestors lived and worked during this period of great change.

Session dates: May: 10th, 17th, 24th, 31st and June: 7th

All sessions: 2 – 3.45pm

Tickets are £50 (society members £45) – which covers all five sessions. Pre-booking is required, because joining instructions will be sent by email to all attendees in advance. Bookings therefore close one day before the event.
