Narrative

rising to 900 m on S side of Drygalski Glacier, Nordenskjöld Coast. A group of nunataks in c.64°49'S 60°51'W, between Andersson Peak and Sentinel Nunatak, was roughly mapped by SwAE but incorrectly shown as a group of small islands in Larsen Ice Shelf; called Tillbergs Öarna after Knut Tillberg, Swedish judge who supported SwAE (Nordenskjöld and others, 1904a, Del. 1, end map). Tillberg Inseln (Nordenskjöld and others, 1904b, Vol. 2, first end map). Islas de Tillberg (Nordenskjöld and others, 1904-05, Tomo 1, end map). Tillberg Islands (Nordenskjöld and others, 1905, map facing p.316; [in c. 64°47'S 60°50'W] BA chart 3175, 1934; 1.iii.1940). Isla Fillberg [sic] (Riso Patron S., 1908, end map). Tilberg [sic] Islands (Wilkins, 1929, map facing p.374). Islas Tilberg [sic] (Argentina. IGM map, 1946). Islas Tillberg (Chile. DNH chart LI, 1947). Islotes Tillberg (Argentina. MM, 1953, p.324). Following survey by FIDS from "Hope Bay" in November 1947, the name Tillberg Nunataks was applied collectively to Sentinel Nunatak (q.v.), the present feature, and two nunataks in 64°49'S 60°53'W and 64°50'S 60°52'W (APC, 1955, p.21; [as rejected name] 1964, p.4). Nunataks Tillberg (Argentina. MM, 1958b, p.188; Pierrou, 1970, p.689; Chile. IHA, 1974, p.277). Following further survey by FIDS from "Hope Bay", 1960-61, the name Tillberg Peak was applied to the present feature (APC, 1964, p.4; BAS 250 sheet SQ 19-20/4, 1-DOS 1974). Isla Tillberg, as rejected form (Chile. IHA, 1974, p.277).
