Bill Rudd Collection: Excavations

Bill worked on several excavation sites within the Borough of Merton and beyond, and recorded much of these activities with his camera. He also made careful examination of trenches dug for other purposes and identified traces of the Roman road known as Stane Street in a Post Office Telephones service chamber in the public pavement of London Road near the old Lodge Cottage which stood in the grounds of the present college.
