Green Children of Banjos. In 1887, 2 children were found at a cave near Banjos Spain. Their language was unknown, not Spanish. They wore clothes of a strange metallic cloth. Their skin had an odd green tint. The boy soon died since it was difficult to get either of them to eat. The girl survived, was able to communicate in Spanish and said they had come from a place that had no sun, a land of perpetual twilight. They heard a loud bang, were pushed through something and then were in the cave.

In 1887, two small children were found alone near the town of Banjos, Spain. But these were no ordinary children who had been lost or abandoned by parents. Upon investigation, they found a small boy and girl, scared and crying, huddled near the entrance to a cave. Their language was unknown to the workers - it certainly wasn't Spanish. More mysterious still, they wore clothes made of a strange metallic cloth... and their skin had an odd green tint.

A picture of a boy named George, forced into a frilly dress. The basket he's holding contains bay leaves, which in the Victorian language of flowers means "I change but in death". His twin sister died and his parents wanted a keepsake of her so this was the nearest they could get. I imagine they found comfort in it, but it seems quite strange to me.

Millie and Christine McCoy (1851-1912) were conjoined twins born into slavery. They and their mother were sold to a showman, Joseph Smith. Smith and his wife educated the girls; they eventually could speak five languages, dance, play music, and sing. They were known as 'The Two Headed Nightingale'. In the 1880s they retired and purchased a small farm. Millie died of tuberculosis at age 61, with Christine following hours later. They remain one of the oldest-lived set of conjoined twins.

3500 years of Cappadocian cave homes: These unique underground havens once were used by early Christians to hide from Roman armies, yet they remain occupied to this day - 100 square miles with 200+ underground villages and tunnel towns complete with hidden passages, secret rooms and ancient temples, with each new civilization building on the work of the last.

A tiny tot from 45 thousand years ago. The majority of Neanderthal bones found are small children. A testament to the fact that life was hard during the last ice age. Perhaps children born in the dead of winter never made it. There have been baby Neanderthal bones found in caves amongst the refuse piles suggesting infanticide as well.
