The Green Children of Woolpit were two children who appeared in the village of Woolpit in Suffolk, UK, in the 12th century. The children were brother and sister and they had green colored skin. Their appearance was normal in all other areas. They spoke an unrecognized language and refused to eat anything other than pitch from bean pods. Eventually their skin lost its green color. When they learned English they explained that they were from the ‘Land of St Martin’ which was a dark place because the sun never rose far above the horizon. They claimed that they were tending their father’s herd and followed a river of light when they heard the sounds of bells – finding themselves in Woolpit.
Some of the more unusual theories proposed for the origin of the children are that they were Hollow Earth children, parallel dimension children, or Extraterrestrial children.
The Pollock Twins
In 1957, two sisters Joanna (11) and Jacqueline Pollock (6) were tragically killed in a motor accident in Northumberland, England. One year later, their mother gave birth to twins Jennifer and Gillian. Remarkably, the younger twin, Jennifer, had birth marks on her body in exactly the same place as Jacqueline had them. The coincidences don’t stop there, either.
Before too long the twins were requesting toys belonging to the deceased girls which they had no prior knowledge of, and desiring to visit a park they had never been to. A well-respected psychologist at the time, one Dr. Ian Stevenson, studied the case in-depth and concluded it was likely the twins were reincarnations of their departed sisters.
