Jesus Dead and Buried

I must admit, given all the reading I’ve done on the historical Jesus and the history of early Christianity of late, I’m rather fascinated by the recent claim that the tomb of Jesus — with his bones inside — has been identified. So little is known about the historical Jesus that I’m highly skeptical that Jesus and his family could be positively identified. Perhaps physical evidence of a crucifixion might be apparent with Jesus and perhaps the bones could be dated to within the right time period — but could anything definitively identify any of these people as the characters from the Gospels? (The Gospels themselves aren’t even reliable historical documents!)
