The Old Wife's Neck

Standing Stones


"There ev'ry herd by sad experience knows,
How wing'd with fate, their elf shot arrows fly,
When the sick ewe her summer food forgoes,
Or stretch'd on earth the heart-smit heifers lie"

Flint Chips, A guide to Prehistoric Archaeology
by Edward T. stevens

An elf shot is a flint arrow head.
