Narrative

Small peninsula forming the W side of Inverleith Harbor on the NE coast of Anvers Island, in the Palmer Archipelago. The NE point of the peninsula was charted in 1927 by DI personnel on the Discovery, who named it Briggs Point for Able Seaman A.C. Briggs, a member of the survey party. As air photos show no distinct point in this location, the name was applied to the entire peninsula by the UK-APC in 1959.
