    Very interesting. The article doesn’t say, but I wonder how, or if, this account was accepted by the people because of the Green man legend in the Celtic world. And the green man stories often pop up in different forms: Robin Hood, and most recently, the Odd Life of Timothy Green.

    In the way that this story of these two is presented, I wonder about Hansel and Gretl, and the the Pied Piper of Hamelin.
