At the academy, Librarian Pelan gives this quest, it ends up when you kill the ArchDruid Gasan in Salisbury plains.
You may have to /whisper Gem Staff to get this quest. Also see below under helpful hints.
This is what I had to do: Pelan (2nd floor on building just north of the patio at the academy) Sends you to speak with Scout Dherin (atop the watch tower just south of Castle Sauvage)(New Frontiers he can be found inside the entrance of the tower located east of Gronyr's Farm. Approx. 39k,32k, Camelot Hills.) who in turn sends you to speak with Gral Bermorn (atop the tower in C. Ulfwych) who sends you in several errands that culminate in the final fight with Archdruid Gasan.
"The Darkenstone is taken from one of the Giant Skeletons in the circle at 57k,57k. If lost or damaged, another can be obtained by returning and taking another from the Giant Skeletons."
You visit the major circles in a clockwise manner around sals plains. The first one is the one where the large skeletons spawn at night, as you travel along the river to the broken bridge.
The minor circle I used was the one just south of west downs.
From the first major circle go west to the next one, west to the next one again, west to the next one again. north to the next one, north-eastish to the next one and then finaly southish to the next. They are very easy to spot.
Then go to stonehenge for the last step and use the darkenstone. Archdruid Glasan will spawn at a smaller circle of stones, just north of the centre of stonehenge.
There are the 7 circles listed in order that you must visit and activate the well using the ley crystal along with their respective locs.
1. Beartaine: 55k,44k
2. Midsummer: 46k,46k
3. Lughnasadu: 22k,45k
4. Mabon: 12k,45k
5. Yule: 12k,28k
6. Imblog: 54k,12k
7. Ostara: 54k,28k
To use the Darkenstone, equip it in the hot bar, then press E (or your use button) and then click on the stone. Ley stones are used in the same manner.

After reading some of the posts on this site, I thought I'd try out the quest. I saw that Pelan would not give the quest to another Friar (Lv 28 Friar myself), but thought to try it anyway. I found him but he would not give me the time of day, let alone the quest. :(
However, I ended up moving closer to him and in the corner by the bookcases I got a message saying I had "Entered the Library"...on a whim I asked again and it worked!
So...if he does not give you the quest, try moving around in the area you find him in until you get the "enter library" message and hope for the best! Good luck!
Dialog from quest- submitted by: bethany
Gral Bermorn says, "Within Salisbury there exist eleven druid circles, eight major, three minor, and the axis circle where you obtained the darkenstone. Of the three minor circles, one lay in the south and two in the north. All others can be considered major including Stonehenge itself. If a darkenstone is taken into any of these circles, the holder will be made aware if it is major or minor. Each of the minor circles can be instructed to offer up a ley crystal by using the darkenstone. It will be the ley crystal that will allow you to [ switch ] the wells on."
Gral Bermorn says, "As the last rays of light fade from Salisbury, travel to each major druid ring and make use of your crystal. The crystal will be crushed in the process and will activate the ring's well. As Morgana's power has hold of the tombs below these rings, I am unsure what the mix of necromantic power and ley energy will have upon you and the circle itself. Be prepared for anything! If you find yourself without a ley crystal return to a minor circle and use the darkenstone to gain another. If you are foolish enough to lose your darkenstone, you may return to the [ axis circle ] and kill a skeleton to obtain another.
Gral Bermorn says, "All seven of the wells can only be activated using darkness. If dawn arrives and you have not visited all seven you must wait till the next night to complete the ritual. When you have established the alignment of these ley lines, travel to the heart of Stonehenge and use your darkenstone for the final time. Upon the stone's destruction the bonds that tie the portal close should ignite and allow it to be [ opened from the other side ]."
Gral Bermorn says, "You must be ready for Glasan at this point. When the arch druid arrives, you will have little time to attack him, as his power will grow quickly. If you are successful in slaying him, the staff should shatter on its own. Any shards left from the battle must be returned to me! Here, take these instructions to aid you. Good luck to thee Theurgist."
