1700s

In this episode we explore the 1700s.

With the Age of Enlightenment upon us, we begin the Georgian era of British history, with a long line of Georges on the throne.  

The Industrial and Agricultural revolutions bring the biggest and most important changes, developments and inventions that our nation has ever seen, a seismic amount of change to every facet of daily life.

The colonies of America are fought for and won, and then fought for and lost in the American War of Independence, and a revolution begins in France which brings further bloodshed to the entire continent.
