Chapter 19, Part I

Terms to Outline

  • open field system
  • selective breeding of livestock
  • crop rotation
  • seed drill
  • enclosure movement


Describe some of the major agricultural innovations of the 18th century, including crop rotation, selective breeding, and the enclosure movement.  How does this differ from the previously established agricultural methods, including the open field system?  What were its effects?

Why is there a debate about the effects of the enclosure movement?  Are its effects exaggerated by more traditional historians?

How might women have been affected more dramatically by the agricultural revolution than men?
