The Agricultural Revolution
At the beginning of the eighteenth century more than half the population of England worked on the land or in a trade, such as milling, that was connected with agriculture.
Most of the Land was owned by rich aristocrats of gentry who rented it out to tenant farmers.
These famers paid labourers to work for them.
In much of England, farming used the "open field" system,
which involved dividing a village's fields into strips with every farmer having strips in each field. Every four years one of the village's fields were left fallow. That meant nothing was grown in it.
