Are there any other interesting pieces of fiction involving Neandertals
or other primitive hominids? I'm aware of "Clan of the Cave Bear", of
course, and I've occasional books that look like clones of it come out
since, but I'm after something a bit more original.

Here's one I've seen: "The Ugly Little Boy", by Isaac Asimov, a short
story about a Neandertal boy who is bought into the present in a "time
bubble" that he cannot leave.
