Ancestral Grounds

In-game picture of Ancestral Grounds

Ancestral Grounds
are a type of building in Empire: Total War.


A place to honour the dead and pray to them for advice and guidance.

Some places in the mortal world have a stronger connection to the spirit world than others. These are places where the spirits of the ancestors feel comfortable, places where men can talk with them and ask for their wisdom.

Historically, the most famous example of these places is Black Hills of Dakota, a place believed to be the spiritual centre of the world. This hallowed land was respected by those who sought wisdom. Unfortunately, it was also the site of a rich gold seam.
