John the Baptist found near Bulgaria?

The remains of the key Bible character John the Baptist have been found on Sveti Ivan Island it is claimed. The archaeologists are convinced, but more tests are needed. How they know I haven’t got a clue, but if it is proved to be John the Baptist it would be a wonderful for Christianity (if it was shown to be true – it was claimed his bones had been found in Iran five years ago, but obviously not I guess). One wonders if this isn’t another opportunistic attempt to boost Christian tourism to the area, something which the Roman Catholics are renowned for being good at.
