Named after Roald Amundsen (1872-1928), Norwegian polar explorer, who was the leader of the expedition which first reached the South Pole in 1911, and first to fly across the North Pole by airship in 1926. Whilst he is usually associated with the Ross Sea area, Amundsen's first landing site in the Antarctic was on Moreno Rock (approximately 20 km east of Two Hummock Island) on 24 January 1898 during the Belgian Antarctic Expedition (1897-99), lead by Lieut. Adrien de Gerlache de Gomery.
