Ecological
could pick up the various animal habitats and natural/geological environments

Religion and Belief
A fair number of these still left - issue about whether to take out Cathedrals from Objects

There are a number of manufacturing, mining etc. I can't think of anything better at the moment than "Human Activity" which we used for Category as well. could also cover Opera, Scripts, Salt, Spice route, Silk rd, Sport, Exhibitions, Erotic art etc.

Forts goes quite well in "objects" (Call it "Objects/Buildings"?)

Highest , 7 Wonders , Isolated, Uninhabited, Disputed, Replica can go in Trivia

Crusades in historical events. I might have merged historical events and ages?

There shouldn't be too many left after that - perhaps if something is left it must be "trivia"! How many "groupings" do we want? We must be past/around 250 connections now. Target a max of c 50 per any 1 grouping -enough to be taken in "at a quick glance"/ on one 1 full display page? Equally don't want too many "small" ones

Is not the "object" grouping perhaps a little too vague? A single group which can accommodate both canyons and clocks do not say much about its contents!
How about

Aqueduct
Boats
Bridges
Cable cars
Canals
Funiculars
Ports
Railways

Art:

Erotic art
Frescoes / murals by famous painters
Music Academies
Mosaic art
Opera
Petroglyphs
Statues
Theatres

Death:

Catacombs
Cemeteries
Dynastic Burial Places
Mausolea
Necropolises
Tombs
