Wikipedia has an article on Lent here. The Catholic Encyclopedia article is here. Ken Collins, a Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) minister, has a printable explanation, including links to further resources, here. BBC has a secular overview here.
Praying Lent is a set of resources to enable us "to assist our entry into this wonderful season, from our preparing to begin Lent to our preparing to celebrate the holy three days following Lent."
The United Methodist Church has links to resources here and here.
