Archaeologists have unearthed Admiral Lord Nelson's travel kettle during an excavation in Plymouth.

The kettle was amongst a number of the famous sea captain's personal effects that were discovered during digging for a new shopping centre.

Also discovered was his electric shaver, his personal footspa, a thing for shaving jumpers, his comedy horned Viking helmet, an English-Spanish phrasebook and a picture of Al Jolson signed, 'To Horatio, give 'em hell! Love Al'.

These items will go on display at the British Museum, alongside a TV remote that reputedly once belonged to the Duke of Wellington.
