troglodyte

(noun) A cave dweller, especially one of the prehistoric peoples thought to have lived in caves.

Synonyms: caveman

Usage: These vile old troglodytes are no longer there; but into their deserted cave another terrible giant has thrust himself, and makes it his business to seize upon honest travelers and fatten them for his table.

Nice word, reminiscent of paleontology, archaeology, Neanderthals, spelunkers, cave bears and so on.
