Guidebooks

Discovering Prehistoric England, James Dyer, Shire Publications, 1993

I bought this book over 10 years ago in England and bring it with me on each trip. It lists by region the prehistoric sites. There are some photos and good descriptions. This is a good book if you want to hunt out obscure stone circles, hill forts, hill drawings, and other prehistoric remains.

Order from Amazon

Note: Amazon.com says there is a 1999 edition, but this is not listed on Amazon.co.uk, so I assume it is a typo - I have the 1993 edition.
