Steven Gertz gives a nice survey of 20th Century finds that relate to Scripture. He rightly points out:
Christians should recognize that archaeology doesn't "prove" essentials of Christian faith, such as Jesus' resurrection. But they do give us confidence our holy book doesn't exist in a historical vacuum—and that the biblical writers knew what they were talking about.

Archaeology helps us with the underpinnings of a reasoned faith. But it's a faith that must finally come to a trust in 'things not seen'.
