Some of old favourites like dykes, Tan and Milk Hill turn up in this interesting discussion by Andy B on the Megalithic Portal (where he gave TME a good rubbishing). He seems to be straining after what is really going on, though I doubt if it's because of TME. I won't put in quotes to aid readability:
Many writers have noted the association between linears other than cross-dykes and barrows. Fieldwork on the Pewsey Downs identified two forms of association between these earthworks: the course of some linear earthworks is aligned on barrows and, occasionally, barrows are incorporated into linear earthworks. The Wilcot 5 linear is aligned between the Gopher Wood dewpond and an inconspicuous barrow some 800m west.
The courses of the composite linears on All Cannings Down are sighted on round barrows and one earthwork executes a right-angled turn to incorporate a round barrow (NMR SE 06 NE 33). The twin linears on the western spur of Milk Hill run to the east and west respectively of a disc barrow (NMR SU 16 SW 6). Giles (2007) viewed this incorporation of barrows as an attempt to 'involve the past in the present’ changing the perception of that past and renegotiating movement and access to particular spaces in an increasingly pressured First Millennium BC environment and society.
Giles’ analysis is contradicted by evidence from Wiltshire: the placing of linears in relation to barrows on Tan Hill, Snail Down and the Nadder-Ebble ridge point to an intent to separate burial mounds from quotidian life. This suggests that by the Late Bronze Age burial mounds were associated with meanings and activities outside the discourses of everyday life, and had become places of myth, superstition and fear.

Extensive fieldwork on the Pewsey Downs of Wiltshire in central southern England has challenged prior classifications and interpretations of linear earthworks. A novel classification of linear earthworks is offered, and their place in the social structure and subsidence system of first millennium BC prehistoric society considered.
It is suggested that linear earthworks were complex, long-term structures that changed meaning over time and that simple explanations of their nature, chronology and meaning are insufficient. Consideration is also given to the role of linear earthworks in the creation of special places, particularly the partition of burial mounds from the everyday landscape, and the place of linear earthworks in the origin of Iron Age hillforts.http://www.megalithic.co.uk/article.php?sid=24142#55090
