Simon (and everyone else that replied) thanks for the suggestions.
"Archaeological guide" seemed the key words because as soon as I
searched with those I came across loads of guides.
I finally decided on the 1. England 2. Ireland & 3. Scotland (Oxford
Archaeological Guides) [Paperback] by O'Halpin, Andy; Newman...
Which I was able to order for a total of £20 from Amazon.
