My wife is a descendant of the royal Han family, going back through ancient Chinese history. I simply typed "Han dynasty" and found 0 results. Ashamed of you :)

Let's try to get those in please. As well as more Asian History.

<script type="text/javascript">// <![CDATA[ function deleteAttachment(index, id) { if (confirm('Do you want to delete this attachment?')) { $.ajax({ url: 'http://chronozoom.codeplex.com/workitem/1145/deleteAttachment/-1'.replace('/-1', '/' + id), type: 'DELETE', success: function() { $('#FileItem' + index).hide(); }}); } return false; } // ]]></script>
Ideally, I think I would like to be able to eventually link Freebase Event entities such as to a corresponding Chronozoom entity index. WikiData will have these as well.

Freebase plans to finalize the Topic API output by end of May 2012. Here is an alpha preview version of the JSON output for that Han Dynasty topic :
https://www.googleapis.com/freebase/v1-sandbox/topic/en/han_dynasty

I would like to see a Topic Equivalent support for WebLinks at the database level. Allowing Content Authors and Curators to say SAMEAS essentially. And be able to populate a database with existing content from Freebase, WikiData, DBPedia, etc... fairly easily. I will create a new issue for this request now.
