Regarding Arthur, Mallory and La morte d'Arthur is one source, probably the definitive one.

Regarding Fionn mac Cumhaill, ahhh the stories we were told as kids. The Giant's Causeway and all that. Memories...err this aint relevant.

Ok, you should look at Beowulf as a primary source. There's shedloads of academic articles on it. Tolkien loved it.

Also, look for articles on the 'Anglo Saxon Chronicles'. A very difficult book to decipher (how's you Anglo-Saxon anyway?) These small settlements they lived in called steadings...weird. Not all of RJ's references were myths.
