Important Inventions The first factories in the world were the cotton mills in Lancashire. The machines there were driven by water power. In 1764 James Watt invented the steam engine. Technical progress was made in iron-smelting, with coal used instead of charcoal. The first steam locomotive was constructed by George Stephenson in The technical improvements in agriculture (the iron plough, deep ploughing, a scientific rotation etc.) could be applied by big landlords.

20th century The 20th century can be characterized as a period of the decline of Britain as a world power, a period of crises, of two world wars, from which Britain emerged as a victor, but greatly weakened.
