Elf-arrows or, in English folklore, pixie arrows, were arrowheads of flint used in hunting and war by the Pre-Indo-European of the British Isles and of Europe generally, as they still are among native people elsewhere. Elf-arrows derived their name from the folklore belief that the arrows fell from the sky, and were used by the elves to kill cattle and inflict elfshot on human beings.
