A caveman or troglodyte is a stock character based upon widespread concepts of the way in which Neanderthals or early humans may have looked and behaved. The term caveman, sometimes used colloquially to refer to Neanderthal people or Cro-Magnon early humans, originates out of assumptions about the association between early humans and caves, most clearly demonstrated in cave painting or bench models. Cavemen are frequently represented as living with dinosaurs in popular culture, despite the fact dinosaurs became extinct at the end of the Cretaceous period.
