René Salm, a strong supporter of the mythicist position, is very critical of Dark's work, as you might expect (Dark in turn is very critical of Salm's). So, while you may get some information about Dark from Salm, I wouldn't say that he's an unbiased source. From what I've been able to find, Salm's position that Nazareth did not exist as such until much later than the time of Jesus is not widely held. It doesn't help that Salm is apparently without academic qualification in the field of archaeology. With that in mind, and for whatever it may be worth: "A Critique of Dr. Ken Dark’s writings relative to the Sisters of Nazareth convent site" by René Salm
