Perth and Kinross

A location at the mouth of the River Almond in Perth and Kinross, Bertha was the site of Roman fort built in c.85 AD, and re-used at various periods until the early 3rd century. The fort extends to 3.6 ha (9 acres) and was excavated in 1973. More recently geophysical surveys have revealed the remains of a large complex of buildings. Today, there is a farm at Berthapark, a half-mile (0.8 km) to the west. A corruption of the name Bertha gave rise to Perth, the town which lies to the south.
