Tumulus is a monument that is built in some missions in Emperor: Rise of the Middle Kingdom.
There are two types of Tumulus: the regular one is small and requires fewer burial provisions within the tomb (Silk, Bronzeware (becomes Lacquerware during Iron Era) and Ceramics). The earliest missions usually require the construction of the smaller Tumulus.
The Grand Tumulus is built in virtually the same way, but it requires more burial provisions, including Weapons and Carved Jade. Regardless of the monument built, the process is the same. Labourer's will dig out the dirt, leaving a slightly lowered section in the middle for the tomb and provisions. Once all provisions are provided, labourer's place dirt in rows until they reach a peak. At each row, wood is required to create a stable stack.
