Eight days and $12,400 later, Historic Smithfield learned that one of the most notable archaeological finds at the 1750 Courthouse was a circa 1975 “Spider Man” Matchbox car.

The Virginia Department of Historic Resources required that the study, conducted by the James River Institute of Archaeology, be done because the state holds an easement on the property, said project manager Lawrence Pitt.
