The Age of Industrialisation is an important chapter in history. Especially, for the class 10 students after The Making of Global World.
The chapter The Age of Industrialisation begins by explaining the scenario before the Industrial Revolution and how it changed over time in terms of labour, setting up of factories, etc.
But, there aren’t many resources out there on the internet which includes all the important dates from the history chapter The Age of Industrialisation.
