"Trains and upgrades artillery."
In-game description

The Artillery Foundry is a military building in Age of Empires III that becomes available once the Fortress Age (Colonial Age for British, Dutch, Ottomans, and Russians) is reached. It trains and upgrades artillery and some infantry units.

The Iroquois have the Siege Workshop, which functions identically to the Artillery Foundry, while the Aztecs and Sioux do not have artillery and siege units. Asian civilizations have the Castle, which combines the functions of an Artillery Foundry and an Outpost.

"The manufacture of artillery is a laborious process involving furnaces and cranes to move the heavy barrels through several stages of construction."
