15 of the Strangest Unsolved Mysteries

12. The Green Children

Sometime during the 12th Century, it was reported that two young children wandered into the village of Suffolk, England. They appeared to be normal children except that their skin was green. They did not speak a known language and only ate beans.

Eventually the girl, the boy having died, learned English and lost her green hue. She informed the townsfolk that she and her brother were from a place called “Saint Martin’s Land” where everyone was green.

Many believe that the tale was pure myth or over exaggerated. Meanwhile, others still search for the truth behind the Green Children.
