Fort Weyr is the oldest Weyr on Pern. In the first few years, it served primarily as assistance to the sleds, but soon grew enough in numbers to take over completely. By 1P20 (28 AL), in fact, it had grown so large that several new Weyrs proved necessary.
Fort Weyr's Records have traditionally been the central repository of wisdom on Pern, until its abandonment at the start of the Second Long Interval. It has also historically been the leading Weyr, until Benden's rise to prominence in the Ninth Pass
