Looking for Books of the Ancients

So I'm jonesing for some science fiction of a particular nature. Specifically stories that deal in the Precursors trope

I'm a big fan of stories where the 'Precursors, 'Ancients', 'Priors', 'Forerunner' or similarly-named race are an incredibly more advanced yet suspiciously absent people who's leavings protagonists stumble over. Videogames like the Halo or MassEffect series, shows like the Stargate series, books like Alistair Reynold's 'House of Suns' I really love.
I would be ecstatic if any Mefites could suggest some more reading material along these lines. Other types of media would not go unwelcome!
