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

Hi guys,

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!
