What is the average take on the tradiitional Primitive Culture, equated in earth terms?

Being South African, my group often looks toward what the Koi/San Bushmen were in days gone by - effectively hunter gatherers who slowly moved about following the wild game heards. Another take , which I may be off track here, but to our understanding would have been the Picts (both of Ancient Britain and Hyborian). Not sure what a culture like the Laps two millenia back would have been considered to be, prob more nomadic?

Anyhow, I was thinking, after just finishing Shelters of Stone by Jean M Auel, that perhaps a nice take on primitives would be Neanderthals. Assuming they survived being assimilated/exterminated by the Cro Magnons, and also that they did continue to advance as well, albeit at a slower rate or along a different path of priorities, they could be an interesting take on primitive society, where it would be so much more than just culture, but a whole different racial thinking and way of life.

I think I may experiment with this as a GM, will post back here on my findings.
