The prehistoric (caveman) people. The homo habilis predates hom sapiens and lived 2 million years ago. (Dinosaurs lived some 300-400 million years ago).The story of Genesis reflects God's earliest communication with man. Scholars believed that Genesis was written only much later than the other books like Exodus a few thousands of years ago only. The creation of the heavens to the creation of man as written in Genesis shows God's love for mankind, not geographical/ historical facts.
