Thomas, Robert Cowie, and Jane Sidell describe and discuss the excavations during the 1990s in advance of the subway extension, and integrate the findings with those of both archaeological and antiquarian efforts during the 18th, 19th, and 20th century to present a unified account of what science now thinks has been going on there since Mesolithic and Neolithic times. The juicy bits about the royal family are in a different volume, which is not cheap! Distributed in the US by the David Brown Book Company.
