MacGeology is the personal company of Dr. Duncan Macgregor, a well known regional geologist specialising in Africa. I provide short-term consultancy, training and briefings which deliver the 'regional picture' at minimal time and cost so your staff can concentrate on more detailed intra-basinal work. Most of this site is now devoted to maps I am working on covering the paleotectonic and paleogeographic history of Africa
