You can also submit items from your own collection to the website

The BBC and the British Museum are working together to explore some of the items which make up our history.

Throughout 2010, BBC Radio 4 will broadcast a programme called A History Of The World In 100 Objects, and other projects will coincide across the BBC.

This includes looking at items from our history and each local BBC throughout England has chosen ten historical items from museums in their patch.

These are items which reflect life in the county and important artefacts.

Viewers to the A History of the World website will also be able to upload items of interest from their own personal collection. It is hoped that this will build up a great archive of our history.

Relic trail event

Over Easter the Northampton Museum and Art Gallery are holding a Relic trail.

The trail will consist of 5 items featured on the A History Of The World Website.

Josie Hicken from the Northampton Museum and Art Gallery is looking forward to the event.

"We are just finalising all the information of the trail which we believe will be a success," she said.

For more information or to get involved in the Relic trail contact the Northampton Museum and Art Gallery website.
