Hello, I'm Kerensa Jennings. I'm the Director and the Series Producer of Fossil Detectives.

I first came across a fossil when I was eight years old. My family were on holiday, we were in Gran Canaria which is a little island off Spain, and I came across some fossilised coral, and I was amazed that this was once a living creature and it was now turned to stone.

The following year, I went to the Natural History Museum and met a whole load of dinosaurs, and that’s how I started.
