Definition of Prehistoric

  PREHISTORIC   adjective
Belonging to an early period and a museum. Antedating the art and practice of perpetuating falsehood.
  He lived in a period prehistoric,
  When all was absurd and phantasmagoric.
  Born later, when Clio, celestial recorded,
  Set down great events in succession and order,
  He surely had seen nothing droll or fortuitous
  In anything here but the lies that she threw at us.

Orpheus Bowen
