Subject: caveman

I found myself intrigued by the recent request for the first use of
"caveman."  Can anyone who knows the history of the image of the
caveman and its hypothetical cultural reconstructions fill me in?  Or
any references to historical work on the imagery of this late 19th
century version of human evolution?
