Monuments: Sun Temple
Libyans and Bedouins will pose a constant threat to the city at the Bahariya Oasis. They will attack from (literally) the four corners of the play area. You should set up Forts or Towers near the edges of the city to block them. You may even try isolating the oasis, turning it into a walled fortress.
Watch out for invasions that come without a pop-up warning message (sneak attacks!). You can check your military status in the Chief Overseer's panel to see if enemies are approaching. Invasions will escalate the longer the mission goes uncompleted.
The sooner you begin exporting wood, the sooner you can afford to import other raw materials such as barley, flax, and clay. You can then develop the industries to turn these raw materials into refined goods and sell them for even more profits. You will need these proceeds to buy copper to arm your infantry with weapons, as well as the sandstone needed to construct the Sun Temple. Set up plenty of Storage Yards to house the 220 blocks of sandstone you'll need to start it - and don't forget that the initial 220 blocks are only a down payment. You need even more sandstone after construction begins.
