Shaduf is an Egyptian myth technology in Age of Mythology that is available to worshipers of Ptah and can be researched at the Temple. Once researched, it decreases the cost of Farms by 33% and haves their construction time.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • In some versions of Age of Mythology, Shaduf has been found not to reduce the cost of Farms once a saved file has been reloaded.

History[edit | edit source]

The shaduf was a simple, but important invention, consisting of a container made of animal skins or clay attached to a lever counterbalanced by stones. The container was used to lift water from the Nile River and dumped into canals for irrigation.
