Narrative

Ice-covered hill which rises to 1,760 m and projects 120 m above the surrounding ice sheet, situated on the Graham Land plateau 4 mi ESE of the head of Northeast Glacier and 8 mi NE of the head of Neny Fjord. First roughly surveyed by the BGLE, 1934-37, and resurveyed in 1940 by sledging parties of the USAS on whose field charts the hill is labeled "Sawtooth." Named Armadillo Hill by the FIDS following its 1946-47 survey, because when viewed from the NE the tumbled ice blocks on the summit and general shape of the hill resemble the side view of an armadillo.
