Oldest evidence of earthquakes found in strange mix of 3.3-billion-year-old rocks from Africa

The rocks provide early evidence of plate tectonics, which explains the Earth’s crust as being divided into large plates that slide through the mantle. The rocks also show what conditions were like when life first evolved.
