Description:
The Barracks lets you train infantry, including the Clubman, Axeman, Short Swordsman, Broad Swordsman, Long Swordsman, and Legion. In RoR the Slinger is added. You must build the Barracks before you can build the Archery Range, Siege Workshop, Stable, or Academy.
Researching Architecture increases hit points and decreases construction time. In RoR, researching Logistics makes every soldier created in a Barracks count as half a unit, therefore 80 Legions would still only count as 40 etc.
History
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.
