Edward, such a great project! I'm working in something pretty similar both in terms of content and shape, look: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/459523/share/emperors.png also with data from a wikipedia article http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Roman_emperors (the height of the rectangles in the image is ~ to the number of wikipedia articles that link to each emperor article)
