Barracks are the earliest military building available in Age of Empires and allow players to train infantry for combat. The Barracks is also the prerequisite for building later military buildings such as, the Archery Range, Siege Workshop, Stable, and Academy.
Researching Architecture from the Government Center increases the Barracks' hit points up to 420 and decreases its building time.

"When the first armies came into being, places were needed eventually to make weapons, store weapons, drill troops, and house troops. The Barracks in Age of Empires represents these places."
