A summary of the archaeological finds in Nazareth, excerpt from Gregory Jenks' "The Quest for the Historical Nazareth", 2013, p.7-10:
Jenks, the RC priest with an obvious agenda get's his info from Ken Dark. Salm easily dismantles Dark's arguments by citing an acknowledged expert in kokh tombs, Hans-Peter Kuhnen. Kuhnen wrote "Palästina in griechisch-römischer Zeit" which gives conclusive evidence that the kokh tombs in question almost certainly did not appear in Galilee as early as they did in Jerusalem.

So you are left struggling to answer how post 50 CE tombs are buried under Mother Mary's bedroom. There has been a weak answer to this embarrassing question, but it is laughable.

^Seems to me there is plenty of independent lines of evidence suggesting the existence of a 1st century Nazareth.
Yes ,you are correct, but the evidence is piss poor and often woefully gathered as Salm points out in his books that you haven't read. My apologies in advance if you have read them, but it doesn't look like it from your posts.

And this is before we consider the evidence of the Gospels, which, regardless what you think of the historicity of its characters and events, presuppose their hearers acceptance of the existence of a 1st century village of Nazareth.
Sorry, what do you mean with the above?
