Greenlit: A History of Luxury, BBC4

A History of Luxury (2 x 60′ ) –  Historian and author Dr Michael Scott looks at the items valued or desired by men and women over the centuries, focusing particularly on the Classical and Medieval periods. Whether kings and queens, warriors and merchants or peasants and slaves, A History Of Luxury provides a unique insight into the worlds in which these people lived through the luxury items they have coveted. Scott argues that it is the most surprising “luxuries” of history which allow us to unlock the extraordinary cultures and civilisations that cherished them.
