Admins - please just delete this post if it's not acceptable here!

I've just picked up a copy of Würm - the Ice Age Roleplaying Game from Chaosium, it's currently on a massive discount along with various adventure booklets, scenario books etc.

Why is it relevant here? Well, it's a game about the lives of paleolithic peoples (both homo sapiens and neanderthals), a labour of love by the author Emmanuel Roudier and filled with his beautiful artwork. There are spirits, magic, period-appropriate animals, fantastical creatures - even people who can shape-change, and who have totemic bonds with guardian animal spirits.

Sound familiar? There are obvious similarities to some of the Hsunchen peoples in Glorantha, particularly the tribes of Fronela (Rathori, Uncolings, Hogari etc), and quite apart from its own merits as a game, this is a really useful sourcebook to understand the paleolithic/neolithic technology and culture of Gloranthan Hsunchen. I'm really pleased I bought it, and the current price is excellent value for money.
