Perth is a city in Scotland situated in the Perth and Kinross area on the banks of the River Tay. Its name means wood or copse in the ancient Pictish language, so it is fair to assume that it was once a wooded area. There have been people (the first people didn’t settle, as they were hunter-gatherers) in the area for more than 8,000 years as evidenced by the archaeological discoveries. The Romans called Perth Bertha which was derived from the Celtic, Aber, which means mouth of the Tay. Royalty had their residences in the city in the middle ages and King James I of Scotland, whose favourite residence was in Perth, was murdered there in 1437. Scone is nearby where the monarchs of Scotland were crowned.
