Map 18.1: The Early Phase of Europe’s Industrial Revolution

Reading the Map: What is lacking in France’s coal and iron areas in comparison to Britain’s coal and iron areas?



Model Answer:

• The iron ore and coal deposits in Britain have numerous railroad lines intersecting them and connecting them to other industrial areas and cities and coasts; the iron ore and coal deposits in France mostly have few railroad lines connecting them to anywhere else.



Connections: What is the geographical relationship of the industrial areas on the map to deposits of coal and iron ore? What does the relationship tell us about the necessity of having large natural resources in a country?

Model Answer:

• Some of the industrial areas are near, but not in the same location, as coal and iron ore deposits, such as Lyon and Saxony, and some are quite far away from any coal or iron ore deposits, such Paris, Berlin, or Milan. Factories were not always built where the resources were, but for other reasons, such as where the workforce or investment capital was.
