the lords of manors agreed to carve up everyone’s field to fix this problem (closed areas would be divided up – enclosure ) – not necessarily split up evenly - Middle-sized holders who couldn’t invest – wasn’t too great - Enclosure Act in Parliament – more than 1.5 acres of land were enclosed; in 18 th century, French & Prussian gov’ts followed suits - Agricultural innovations o Four crop rotation – designed to produce more food in the same land in shorter periods of time - Ability to raise more animals – cross breading & fattening on enclosed land increased production; more food was produced cheaper food caused discretionary spending more demand for consumer goods more rural manufacturers - Lead to protoindustrialization : before the rise of the factory system; excess of people to land (therefore, not everyone can live off by agriculture) putting-out system : someone organizing productions & families in rural communities would get allotted stuff & work it to then send back // as more family devoted more time to industrial work; spinning, weaving, or finishing textiles II.
