Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

Can anyone suggest how to tag a prominent local feature that is a man-made hill? https://s0.geograph.org.uk/geophotos/02/77/44/2774448_ab0f0021.jpg

I've used an 'embankment' but feel that's not the best tag? See here: https://www.openstreetmap.org/?mlat=52.53806&mlon=-0.27548#map=17/52.53805/-0.27547

Ones that look like they have a person underneath are historic=archaeological_site + site_type=tumulus or historic=tomb + tomb=tumulus.

There is an old proposal that suggests man_made=peak + peak=knoll/hillock but this doesn't seem to have gained much traction. There is slightly more usage for natural=knoll and peak=hillock which are documented as tagging options for orienteering.
