The Catholic Church owned England�s coal mines until Henry VIII kicked out the Catholic Church, partly because it would not give him an annulment; he appropriated its English assets, including its mines.� During Elizabeth I�s reign, England began its ascent to industrialization and England�s woods were once again decimated.� Elizabeth established commissions to investigate the dire state of England�s woods, and the results were unanimous: they were largely gone. [758] � Until Elizabeth I�s reign, England was relatively backward and the Netherlands was far ahead in economic development.� The geographic isolation of the British Isles made them culturally quaint compared to their continental neighbors, which can still be seen today with the British reverence for its royalty. [759] � Japan is the other isolated industrialized island nation, on the opposite side of the Eurasian landmass, with a similar religious fervor toward its royalty.� The Netherlands was Europe�s most urbanized place although it was resource-poor and began intensive agricultural efforts to reduce its dependence on imported food, and grain in particular.� The land-poor Dutch even began to claim land from the North Sea, in history�s greatest effort of oceanic land reclamation.� During Henry VIII�s reign, England had a primitive economy that provided raw materials to the Low Countries, where they dyed English cloth and sent it back, and southern England exported wood to deforested France. [760] England imported its m unitions from the Low Countries, and when the Continental wars began that would culminate in the devastating Thirty Years� War, Henry noted England�s vulnerability and began developing its arms industry.� England�s iron industry began in 1543. [761] � When Rome invaded, it established iron operations in what became Sussex, which deforested the area within a century.� In the same place, more than a millennium later, Henry revived England�s iron industry .� Sussex was quickly deforested, and hearings were held only five years later, in 1548, regarding the deforestation and ruination of the commoners by the new iron industry, as the price of wood skyrocketed.� Although the commission was concerned, the Crown did nothing about the situation, as an important industry could not be thwarted.� Sussex�s residents took matters into their own hands and attacked a local forge, which coincided with rebellions in other counties; they were brutally suppressed by the lords and Crown. [762] While Spain and Portugal were busy plundering humanity, England was still getting its domestic house in order and began emulating Dutch practices.� During the last half of the 1500s, England�s �contribution� to the world�s rape was largely limited to harrying the Spanish.� England�s ri chest private citizen was the pirate Francis Drake, whose claim to fame was stealing Spanish silver by surprise raids of its Pacific ports and circumnavigating Earth as the only way to return home with the loot. �While Drake was sailing around Earth with his booty, Martin Frobisher hauled back thousands of tons of fool�s gold to England from a bay named after him. �England�s first colony in the Western Hemisphere disappeared without a trace. �Such were the follies of England�s early imperial efforts.� Before England became an imperial aspirant, it conquered its neighbors.� Ro man Emperor Hadrian built a wall to keep out the �barbarians� of what became Scotland.� A second wall was built farther north a generation later .� England first invaded Scotland in 1296, and that region�s Scots were subjected to incessant warfare.� The Scots fought alongside France in the Hundred Years� War, and my family name reflects that heritage; I have a surname with French roots and spelling, but my direct ancestor came from Scotland.� Scotland formally united with England in 1707 and became Great Britain, but warred with England until 1745.� A period of Scottish peace with England began in 1560. �As E ngland ran out of wood it invaded Ireland, and the conquest was not completed until 1603 .� An English businessman first suggested moving wood-hungry English glassworks to Ireland in 1589; after the conquest was complete in 1603, the rapid decimation of Ireland�s remaining forests commenced. [763] � Ireland has yet to recover its forests. �The English established a colony in Ireland at Ulster, and used Borderer Scots and other lower-class subjects to populate the colony as a kind of cannon fodder who were promised land for �settling� where the fiercest resistance to the English invasion had been .� That colony formed the toehold that became Northern Ireland, and post-colonial strife with Ireland lasted to this century.
