You can get lots of extra peasants (more than the limit of 24) by doing the following. Put your Quarries and Oxen to sleep. Now there will be that many more available when buying Swordsman etc. Just wake them up when you are done. This is useful if you don't want to wait until for your Peasants to fill up the campfire, or you just need them right away.
Keep bears away
When bears kill civilians, your popularity decreases. To avoid this, simply build a wood fence around a bear when it appears.

Stopping Bear Attacks:
When you see a bear appear or hear of one attacking, just build a wooden wall around it and soon it will die. Or you can send your Archers to kill it, which is a quick way of stopping bears and gaining popularity.
Destroying the Enemy quickly:
In order to destroy your enemy, place as many Archers as you can on the wall facing the sign post. A small number of Archers can take out a reasonable size army.
Unlimited Trebuchet Ammunition
Click 'Launch Cow' and select your target (Wall/Building). The moment you click on the target, click 'Stop'. Your Catapult/Trebuchet will fire a rock! Just note that you need to have cows in store for this cheat to work!
Archers fire farther
During a seige such as "Kill the Rat" or some such, if you set your archers at a spot where they aren't under attack and somewhat near the wall, have them fire at something such as a wall, gate, or tower. Immediately after, click on an enemy or building to fire upon (somewhat close to the area you targeted) and if done correctly, your archers should fire upon the new target. This is useful to make your men fire farther and keep them out of harms way.
