The Green Children of Woolpit were two children of unusual skin colour who reportedly appeared in the village of Woolpit in Suffolk, England, some time in the 12th century, perhaps during the reign of King Stephen. The villagers of Woolpit discovered two children, a brother and sister, beside one of the wolf pits that gave the village its name.

AppearanceEdit

The children, brother and sister, were of generally normal appearance except for the green colour of their skin. They spoke in an unknown language, and the only food they would eat was beans.

Possible ExplanationsEdit

There are several explanations as to what the creature could be. Theories include:

  • A hoax/folktale
  • Extraterrestrial

Notable EncountersEdit

There are no notable accounts that we could find.

TriviaEdit

  • Eventually they learned to eat other food and lost their green pallor, but the boy was sickly and died soon after he and his sister were baptised. The girl adjusted to her new life, but she was considered to be "rather loose and wanton in her conduct". After she learned to speak English, the girl explained that she and her brother had come from St Martin's Land, an underground world inhabited by green people.
