Description:
The Medium Wall has more hit points than the Small Wall. The Medium Wall can be upgraded to the Fortification. You can research and upgrade walls at the Granary.
Walls are defensive structures that can be built around your empire or important areas. Villagers and military units cannot move through standing walls, however, they can attack the walls. Stone Throwers, Catapults, Heavy Catapults, Ballistas, and the Helepoplis are particularly effective for destroying walls.
Researching Architecture increases hit points and decreases construction time.
History

One of the earliest human settlements yet discovered is the city of Jericho near the Jordan River in modern Israel. This site from 7000 BC is remarkable for possessing a stone masonry wall, dry moat around the wall, and a tower. At an astonishingly early age, Jericho demonstrates that the ancients understood principles of fortification that would carry forward essentially unchanged until the development of gunpowder. The Medium Wall is a defensive structure built of stone or other substantial construction to withstand a protracted attack.
