Abstract
Beritzholm, a medieval castle in Scania, southern Sweden, is studied through historical sources, maps, and through a DGPS elevation survey. Its historical and geographical context is taken into account in order to advance the knowledge of the site, which has never been excavated. The castle was in use between the 14th and the 16th century; it was a royal stronghold which functioned as the administrative centre of Färs härad (hundred). Today, only the earthworks remain: a double-motted structure with moats and earthen walls.
