Description
From steam engines and suspension bridges to canals, factories, and pubs, the Industrial Revolution of the 18th and 19th centuries transformed the social and material landscape of Britain, yet few people today realize why the local pub looks the way it does or why a railway station might resemble a cathedral. Archaeologist Tim Cooper explains how to observe the telling features of buildings, structures, and townscapes to show how the architecture of industrial Britain also shaped its people. Cooper sheds light on how and why whole towns and countrysides were redesigned, revealing, for instance, how canals were instrumental in the expansion of industry, and why affluent suburbs are usually situated in the west end of a town.
