There's a very entertaining book on this subject called 101 Things to Do
with a Stone Circle by Geoff Holder. It's not seriously academic but it is
well researched and sceptical - definitely NOT loony tunes.

Subject: [BRITARCH] Megalithic legends
a colleague in France has asked me for help regarding the myths and legends
surrounding megalithic monuments in Britain and Ireland. Not really my
field, and when I tried Googling I just get page after page of loony tunes.
Can anybody out there help? Any folklore surrounding particular megalithic
sites, ideally with some decent scholarly (or at least sober) references
would be marvellous.
It's nearly the weekend!
