Village (Civ1)

During exploration, minor tribes that have not yet advanced to be civilizations may be discovered in the world. These are represented by a small hut symbol. If you enter a minor tribe’s village by moving onto the hut, one of a number of things may happen: you may discover valuable metals (coins), the tribe may become a mercenary unit in your army, you may discover a scroll of ancient wisdom that advances your civilization, your magnificence may inspire them to become civilized and found a new city in your empire, or they may prove to be extremely violent barbarians. - Manual
