STORIES ABOUT PEOPLE: BIOGRAPHIES

History is always made by people. This, of course, equally holds true for the age of the Industrial Revolution.
For this reason ERIH does not confine itself to simply presenting inventions and factories, but also inventors and architects of both sexes. We want to tell stories about the Industrial Revolution because it is so near to us. Near, because it has shaped our lives more than any other age in history. Not only that; our memories are still fresh and, for this reason, the stories are so exciting and authentic.
