Requirements to research the unit Smithy (Level1)

You would think that a swordsman is an attack unit, but be careful, it is actually a powerful defense unit that should be built very early (I mean as in, you have to build it in the first week you start a new village). It only needs a smithy. Quite cheap, but takes a chunk of iron so if you want lots of these, make sure you have a good mine or some nice support.
