The Children Of Woolpit

Woolpit, Suffolk, England

It was 1173, an especially eerie yearie, when the small village of Woolpit in the county of Suffolk was invaded by creatures from another world.

One day, two aliens appeared in the village. These aliens had taken the form of two children, a boy and a girl. But their skin was bright green, and they spoke in a strange alien language. Yes, the villagers of Woolpit were terrified! These green skinned aliens demanded to be fed, but what they ate was truly chilling! Something no human child would eat without being forced! Yes… vegetables!

And then, quite without warning, the boy alien dropped down dead! And the girl alien? Well, that’s the strangest part of all. She became a part-time domestic servant! It turned out that these aliens were not from Mars, or Venus; they were from… Belgium! They were orphans, the children of Belgium cloth makers! Their skin was green because of the dye the parents used on the cloth. They’d been living in the woods so long, the only food they recognised was vegetation.

The boy died of malnutrition, the girl grew up, learned English, got married and went to work for a local knight!
