Stuarts

The Stuart period saw the great plague and fire of London, religious tensions, civil war, the execution of a king, the formation of a republic and the eventually development of a 'constitutional monarchy' that guaranteed the rights of parliament and individual liberties. There was great economic change.  The Transatlantic Slave Trade saw the mass transportation of Africans across the Atlantic Ocean, in appaling conditions, to provide a workforce for the new plantations in North America and the West Indies. Enormous wealth poured into Britain, the arts flourished, cities expanded, new economic institutions were formed and rapid technological developments occured. These laid the foundations for what would, in the Eighteenth century, become the Industrial Revolution.
