This article is about the building in Age of Mythology. For the building in other games of the series, see Lumber Camp.

The Lumber Camp is an Archaic Age building only available to the Egyptians in Age of Mythology. It is used as a drop-off point for wood, and is also where technologies that improve wood gathering are researched.


Myth Technology[]


Wood was a relatively scarce resource for the ancient Egyptians, partly because the only dependable water supply was the Nile River, and partly because few of the native tree species provided wood that could be worked. The Egyptians compensated by establishing Lumber Camps far up the Nile or by trading for the famous cedar of Lebanon. Because of the rarity and expense of wood, most construction in Egypt was of stone or mud brick.
