|Introduced in||The Conquerors|
|Research Time||60 seconds|
|Effect||Foot archer range +1, Tower attack +2|
Yeomen is a technology in Age of Empires II: The Conquerors that is unique to the Britons and can be researched at the Castle. Once researched, it increases foot archer range by +1 and tower attack by +2.
The Yeomen research combined with their civilization bonuses gives the Britons' foot archers the longest attacking range in the game and makes their Longbowmen even more effective at range. With Yeomen, Briton towers also perform better against small-sized attacks, especially with Arrowslits researched as well.

"The longbow developed in Wales became a favored British weapon under Edward I, who quickly understood how it could be effectively deployed. British longbowmen played havoc against French armies throughout the Hundred Year’s War. British free men, called yeomen, were skilled and highly motivated by self-interest. The pay and loot from a successful campaign in France could set up a man in business for life."
