This book is taken from a series which encourages the young reader to deduce how our ancestors lived from a study of the primary evidence which has survived to this day or which has been unearthed by archaeologists. Each title focuses on a specific period in British history and uses colour photographs of artefacts and remains, backed up detailed artists reconstructions, to provide an authentic picture of everyday life in a bygone time.;This particular work discusses life in 19th century Britain, based on the material surviving from Queen Victoria's reign.;British society underwent rapid and radical change during Victoria's reign. At the start Britain had an agrarian-based economy reliant on hand and horse-power; by the turn of the century, Britannia ruled the waves in iron and steel ships, her mechanized factories were the workshops of the world, and her educated workforce day-tripped to the seaside in steam-driven trains. In this book the author discusses the impact of this revolution on the rich and the poor with the help of material that has survived from Victorian times.;The author has written several other titles in this series including "Saxon Britain", "Tudor Britain" and "Viking Britain".
