A quote from Dr. Scott about Luxury:

“Luxury isn’t just a question of expensive and beautiful things for the rich and powerful,” says Dr Scott. “It feeds into ideas of democracy and patriotism, of social harmony and epic courage, not to mention our values as individuals and our relationships with the divine. Indeed the most fascinating thing about luxury is that it is almost impossible to define, and yet we all know it when we see it, because we each have our own ideas of what luxury is (for some – including me – it might be as simple as a day off!) It all depends on who you are. That’s what makes luxury so good to think with as a way into understanding societies, past and present.”

We totally agree!
