Jesus/Jeshua must have been mentioned in some writings from the time.
I base that on a couple of documentary series some time ago called, "Jesus the Man" and "The Life and Times of Jesus" in which historians showed
where references and reports from the time are made.
As an example, they included a lengthy record from a person who had been present at the family's Festive meal where Jesus is said to have turned
water into wine. The report said when he was asked by his mother to fetch the wine, he gave everyone wine instead of only the wealthy, and watered
down old wine to the plebs... which is a different spin on the 'miracle' of turning water into wine.
Recently in another documantary about Jesus's Family it spoke about the records from his family. Such things as how James was older and the son of
another man, as were the older sisters, etc.
If we understand the hebrew concept of marriage in Jesus's time we get a clearer picture of why Mary was considerd a 'virgin', and how the family
unit came to be that we know of.
There is far more information from ancient sources of the day that show the real story has been modified somewhat over the millenia.

Yes. It was quite normal for people to be hung/fastened/staked/nailed to trees or any other obvious post, etc, throughout history in every culture
prior to and alongside the Roman ways.
If the hill Jesus was supposed to have been 'crucified' on had no trees on it as we are led to believe, then I see it is highly possible he was made
to drag a pole to the hilltop.
