Child Labor in Britain - Long Hours

Children who helped to build Victorian Britain worked incredibly long hours. 

Although it may sound unbelievable today, Parish authorities at the time handed-over these youngsters to work for free until they became adults.  In exchange, they were fed and clothed.

This is a clip from the BBC's program, "The Children Who Built Victorian Britain," presented by Professor Jane Humphries.
