A hillock or knoll is a small hill, usually separated from a larger group of hills such as a range. Hillocks are similar in their distribution and size to small mesas or buttes. The term is largely a British one. This particular formation occurs often in Great Britain and China. One of the most famous knolls is the one near Kennedy's point of assassination, the Grassy Knoll.
