Katherine S. Forsyth é unha historiador escocesa especializada na cultura e na historia dos celtas durante o primeiro milenio, en particular dos pictos. É lectora de celta e gaélico na Universidade de Glasgow, en Escocia.

Forsyth é unha experta en escrita ogham, e achegou lecturas de numerosas inscricións, incluíndo a pedra de Lunnasting.[1] Forsyth reinterpretou varias inscricións pictas en ogham que se pensaban que estaban escritas nunha lingua preindoeuropea descoñecida, e defendeu que os pictos falaban unha lingua britónica.[2]
