England's icons

20th January 2006 at 00:00
An online collection of all the things we hold dear about life in England has been launched by Icons. The site, which is funded by Culture Online, includes contributions from the National Trust, Black Cultural Archives, English Heritage and a host of regional and national museums. A full educational programme will be launched in the spring, but free lesson plans and teachers' notes for KS23 are already available covering citizenship, history, numeracy, art and design, literacy, and design and technology for each of the 12 official icons of England.

Celebrities who have nominated an icon and will be featured in the Me and My Icons section include Richard E Grant, Eddie Izzard, Margaret Drabble and Sir Terence Conran.
