CD from Robert Schmidt with results of Project Hindsight (2011)

Project Hindsight began in 1992-93 as a joint initiative of Robert Schmidt, Ellen Black, Robert Zoller, and Robert Hand.

Zoller and Hand subsequently left the project, which continues under the direction of Robert Schmidt, Hellenistic astrologer and translator.

Its imprint is The Golden Hind Press, and it operates as a subscription service.

The mission of Project Hindsight is to retrieve and translate astrology texts of the past and to teach traditional astrology, with a current emphasis on Hellenistic astrology.
