Narrative

Isolated flat-topped nunatak, more than 610 m, which rises above Roberts Ice Piedmont 10 mi N of Mount Calais in the NE part of Alexander Island. First photographed from the air in 1936 by the BGLE under Rymill. Surveyed from the ground in 1948 by the FIDS. The names for this feature and for the group of nunataks to the N are for the brother chieftains, Hengist and Horsa, who led the first Saxon bands which settled England in the fifth century.
