The early modern period saw further dramatic changes in the nature of warfare in Britain. Weapons improved as rifles, cannon, bullets and shells came to dominate the battlefield. The use of cavalry declined, and armies became increasingly professional. The experience of the Crimean War encouraged further changes.
