  • +11% wood gather rate for Egyptian workers.
  • +50% wood carry capacity for non-Atlantean workers.

History[]

Because of the dramatic increases in food production following the invention of agriculture and the domestication of different animal species, advanced ancient societies could support specialized craftsmen. Carpenters, for example, excelled at building with wood. Societies benefited from this specialization because a few skilled carpenters were much more efficient than a like number of unskilled men attempting the same project.
