Clay is a fundamental and common resource in Egypt.
It is gathered from clay patches found throughout the world. Look for terrain, often close to water, where the ground is cracked. A "clay" action icon appears in the corner of your screen when you are standing on a clay patch.
To gather clay, click on the "clay" icon while holding at least one jug of water. (The image of the shovel in the icon is misleading; you do not need a shovel.) Each time you gather clay, you will empty one of your water jugs. You cannot gather clay in the same spot twice consecutively, so after you gather clay, move a little bit until you see the "clay" icon again. About 10% of the time, gathering clay will also get you a piece of flint.
Clay can also be automatically produced by a Raeli Oven equipped with a clay dredge.
