The Ancients are the builders of the Stargates. They were a race of humans who lived millenia before those on Earth. When the Ancients came to the Milky Way Galaxy, they were known as the Altera. The group known as The Others are the Ascended Beings of the Ancients. Those Ancients who did not ascend with The Others died of a plague that swept through the galaxy a very long time ago. There was a group of Ancients who left the Milky Way Galaxy five to ten million years ago and made a new home in the Pegasus Galaxy. Some of the Ancients who lived in the Pegasus Galaxy returned to Earth 10,000 years ago and most likely influenced many of Earth's cultures. The Ancients are the "ancient ones" whose language evolved into Latin and Dr. Daniel Jackson identified them as those who were "the builders of the roads" spoken of in ancient Earth writings.
