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!
