Narrative

Fue cartografiado en 1902, durante un viaje en trineo, por la Expedición Antártica Sueca al mando del Dr. Otto Nordenskjöld, quien le dio este nombre por el apellido de Henryk Arctowski, geólogo, oceanógrafo y meteorólogo polaco de la Expedición Belga de 1897-1899, al mando del teniente Adrien de Gerlache. En las cartas chilenas de 1947 figuró como roca Arctowski. Nunatak situado a 2,5 millas al N del nunatak Hertha. Es uno de los morros de piedra desnuda, de evidente origen volcánico, que forman los nunataks Seal y que se extienden hacia el WNW desde la costa occidental de la isla Robertson, frente a la costa oriental de la península Tierra de O'Higgins.
