The Colonial Age is the second Age (after the Discovery Age) in Age of Empires III. It is characterised by the beginning of colonizing the "New World" and the start of the civilization's military and artillery. The Colonial Age also marks the spread of religion through introduction of the first healing units such as the Priest, Imam or Missionary. Dutch have the skirmisher available and some civilizations have the Artillery foundry available at this age rather than in Fortress Age. Advancement to the Colonial Age requires 800 Food.
