The term "caveman" is most closely related to the Neanderthal peoples. However in reality the Neanderthals and the Cro-Magnon peoples were basically nomadic and migrated along with the fauna which they hunted.
With this in mind, the concept of "caveman" here could also include the various peoples who existed before and after the arrival of Homo sapiens such as Australopithecus afarensis, Homo erectus, Homo sapiens Neanderthalensis, etc.
It could also be extended to include Homo sapiens sapiens throughout the "Stone Age" up to the Chalcolithic Period (also known as the "Copper-Stone Age") which began approximately 5,000 BC along with the transition from migration to settled farming.
