Industrial and social history

The West Midlands has a rich heritage and is well known for achievements in science, industry, art and culture. Almost every part of the West Midlands was involved in industrial development during the industrial revolution. For example, Birmingham had gun, silverware and toy industries, Shrewsbury was known for its flax spinning, pottery and china industries thrived in Staffordshire, as did carpet manufacturing in Kidderminster and silk weaving in Coventry.

Leading innovators also contributed to social change, campaigning against slavery and for the relief of poverty and the advancement of education.
