Welcome to Medfield (…a seemingly peaceful town)
REMEMBER… In the Early Paleozoic Era, North America was… • …covered by oceans!!
Throughout the Paleozoic, North America is pushed up and out of the oceans and the continents merge to form the super-continent… PANGAEA!!
The supercontinent begins to break apart and head to our modern-day continental positions in the Age of Reptiles… …the Mesozoic Era!!
So, in the Cenozoic Era, we can expect that the continent of North America, which used to be the ocean floor, would be mostly… …Sedimentary Rock!!!

What type of rock is Diorite? IGNEOUS!!!
So, the sedimentary rock must have been… STOLEN!!!
