The Archery Range is first available in the Feudal Age, when it can produce both archer and anti-archer skirmisher units. In later ages, stronger and better ranged units can be produced, such as the Arbalest and the Hand Cannoneer. Although cavalry archers are considered as both cavalry and archers, they are created at the archery range.

Other archer units can be created by some civilizations as Unique Units from the Castle.

OverviewEdit

Missile weapons like the bow carried over the Middle Ages from ancient times in most areas of the world. Northern Europe was an exception for many centuries because the dense forests of the region nullified the range advantage of bows. Throwing weapons like axes, javelins, and knives were more popular there. As the forests were cleared, use of the bow spread. Training with missle weapons took place at the archery range. The training of bowmen was especially favored in England, where every town had an archery range and competitions were held each week to encourage practice. From its large pool of archers, England could easily recruit several thousand expert longbowmen for armies going to France. As crossbows and early firearms came into use, men were trained to operate these weapons at a modified archery range.
