This building requires iron and wood and produces cannons. As wood is a building material, it might be wise to make sure the Cannon Foundry's area of influence does not incorporate any market buildings, but instead depends on Lumberjack's huts in the immedeate vicinity.

Cannons are critical for building the most powerful Navy since they are required for the Large warship. Cannons are also used to create Cannon position, which excel at long range firepower and the Large Oriental Trading Ship, an excellent hybrid trading/war ship, and the fastest ship in the game.
