Myriad Islands (65°5′S 64°25′W / 65.083°S 64.417°W / -65.083; -64.417Coordinates: 65°5′S 64°25′W / 65.083°S 64.417°W / -65.083; -64.417) is a scattered group of small islands and rocks extending for about 5 nautical miles (9 km), lying west of the Dannebrog and Vedel Islands in the Wilhelm Archipelago. Charted by the British Graham Land Expedition (BGLE) under Rymill, 1934-37. So named by the United Kingdom Antarctic Place-Names Committee (UK-APC) in 1959 because of the very many islands in the group.
