Eventually, their skin lost its green color. After they learned English, they explained that they were from St Martin’s Land, an underground world whose inhabitants are green and 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. Then they arrived in Woolpit.
