A hillock or knoll is a small hill,[1] 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 John F. Kennedy's point of assassination, the Grassy Knoll.
