Urbanization

After the agricultural revolution, the population density did a massive overhaul. In the relatively short period that was the Industrial Revolution in England, their map completely changed. The two maps I found are great visuals for the change. Not only do they compare the locations of the masses that moved into the cities, but they also pinpoint areas known for coal, textiles, shipyards, salt and valuable metals. Clearly, the masses congregated around these places of booming industry.
