Stone is one of the four primary resources the player must collect in Age of Empires and Age of Empires II. Stone is mainly used to build static defenses like Towers and Walls, but it is also used for some technologies, as well as Wonders. To obtain Stone, the player must send Villagers to collect them from the Stone Mine.
