Narrative

A rounded moutain, about 883m high, standing on the north side of New Harbour between Mt Coleman and Cape Bernacchi, about 7 miles south-west of the latter feature, in Victoria Land. Charted by the BAE, 1910-13, and named for the maker of the primus lamps for the expedition. The name is spelt Hjort's Hill in the popular narrative of this expedition, but the spelling Hjorth's Hill is jused on the map accompanying the narrative. The recommended spelling is based on the form consistently, used in the maps accompanying the scientific reports.
