[[InferredHolocaust It is an educated guess]] that this also becomes the way of life of the [[spoiler: Colonials]] thanks to [[spoiler: Lee Adama]]'s decision to [[spoiler:[[LuddWasRight get rid of all technology and live a primitive, simple life]]]].

* ''Before Adam'' is a historical novel by Jack London, serialized in 1906 and 1907 in Everybody's Magazine. It is the story of a man who dreams he lives the life of an early hominid Australopithecine. The story offers an early view of human evolution. The majority of the story is told through the eyes of the man's hominid alter ego, one of the Cave People. In addition to the Cave People, there are the more advanced Fire People, and the more animal-like Tree People. Other characters include the hominid's father, a love interest, and Red-Eye, a fierce "atavism" that perpetually terrorizes the Cave People. A sabre-cat also plays a role in the story.

If any genuine attempt is made to explore what prehistoric cultures might have been like, it could be considered to fall into the category of {{Xenofiction}}.

Named after [[Film/OneMillionBC the movie of the same name]], which is quite well-known for its gratuitous usage of the trope.



* The 90s ''Nissin Noodles'' commercials with ridiculously tiny cavemen hunting various prehistoric beasts like woolly mammoths and giant pterosaurs in a wasteland.



* The 1940 movie ''One Million BC'' and its 1967 remake titled ''Film/OneMillionYearsBC'' may be the origin of the trope. The 1967 version is chiefly remembered for the mind-blowing sight of RaquelWelch (MsFanservice incarnate) in a FurBikini.

Creator/RayHarryhausen, who animated most of the dinosaurs in the remake, comments that he did not make One Million Years B.C. for "professors... who probably don't go to see these kinds of movies anyway."



* Replace dinosaurs with pyramid-building Egyptians and you get ''Film/TenThousandBC'', which no one with even the slightest interest in ''actual'' prehistory, paleontology, or archaeology should bother even trying to watch. It's implied the leaders are in fact Atlanteans. It's stupid, but at least it isn't restrained. And in fairness, the movie was an obvious homage to ''One Million Years BC'', and adopts the same "eh whatever" attitude towards accuracy.
