Sappers is a technology in Age of Empires II that can be researched at the Castle. The Technology grants Villagers +15 attack against buildings. This technology makes villagers far more effective when it comes to razing enemy buildings. However, many players see Sappers as an unnecessary technology to research since villagers are intended for gathering resources and building structures. Nevertheless, Sappers can come in handy when it comes to accessing resources walled off by enemies or destroying enemy Mining Camps or Lumber Camps located near your resources.

History Edit

Men who specialized in the techniques of attacking fortifications became known as sappers. They dug the trenches to bring weapons up close and they undermined walls to cause their collapse. Armies without a contingent of sappers were handicapped when attempting to take a castle or fortified town. Many sappers worked as mercenaries for the highest bidder.
