    Not in the modern sense, they were mainly focused on survival. War didn’t really help is that aspect like it did when civilizations started to grow.

    'Cavemen' is not an acceptable historical term

    However, sadly, it does look as if there were massacres in the Stone Age.

    A site by Lake Turkana in Kenya shows evidence of 27 seven people, including small children and a pregnant woman who had been battered to death and left where they fell, probably in the course of a war between hunter-gatherers.

    This is not well known at all.  It is known that apes do, as do modern humans.  Bones of cavemen are not as common as some seem to think!  So, finding evidence of war using bones is pretty difficult, but, there have been cases were violence seems to have been the cause of death.  But, extrapolating that to war is problematic.

    No, not organized wars like involving different groups coming together against a common enemy. It was just one clan against another clan of small groups.
