John the Baptist: found!

Well, not quite, but a major archaelogical site has been discovered just outside Jerusalem.

According to the Indiana Jones-like archaelogist Shimon Gibson, "The first concrete evidence of the existence of John the Baptist has been found on site."

Gibson, the author of several books on biblical archaelogy, believes the finding to be "the first archaeological proof of the historical veracity of the Gospels".

One wonders what was found. Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't John the Baptist wander around in the desert, eat wild honey and locusts, and lose his head. It doesn't seem that he would leave a lot of evidence behind.
