Names that other countries have for this feature:
Isolated group of about five partly snow-covered nunataks, more than 610 m, which rise above Roberts Ice Piedmont, 14 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 these nunataks and for the isolated nunatak to the S are for the brother chieftains, Hengist and Horsa, who led the first Saxon bands which settled England in the fifth century.
