What do you mean by the term agricultural revolution?

Agriculture means farming

Revolution means a change.

It basically means changes in farming. Lots of new farming methods were introduced. At first people owned a few strips of land scattered over a couple of fields but farmers would swap with each other so they had a big chunk of land instead. Eventually people each had big bits of land which was called enclosures. High farming is the application of science to farming to make new machinery. For example, when the seed drill was invented many people lost their jobs. Farm owners would hire laborours to plant each seed individually but when the seed drill was intruduced many people lost they're jobs. However this saved farmers alot of money.

What conditions helped the Industrial Revolution to take root in Great Britian?

a few off the top of my head

enclosure movement- property became a commodity, no more "common grounds" see growth of wool trade

agricultural revolution-farming became more efficient and commercialized. This not only created surplus capital for private investment (for industry, technology). Also ag. thus required less labor and made possible a labor surplus (workers for factories in urban areas)

Limited aristocracy (limited from the time of william the conquer) . - unlike France with its many aristocrats that thought work or commerce was beneath them, the landed gentry in England (upper class though different from the aristocracy) were more willing to engage in investment and enterprise.

geography- GB was an island thus spared (directly) from the Continent's wars

Abundant Coal deposits - steam power (engine was invented by Watt in Scotland) \

political stability made progress possible

spirit of limited government, goes back to the Magna Carter, Supremacy of Parliament firmly est. post the English civil war
