The Bear Paw Nailed to the Old Church Door

In his novel For Whom the Bell Tolls, Ernest Hemingway wrote about a bear's paw nailed to the old church door in a small mountain village in Spain.

It turns out that there really is a bear's paw nailed to the church door, and now, science has confirmed that the paw comes from the 16th century.

This is the fascinating story of the mysterious bear's paw: Link [YouTube] - Thanks elzo!
