Scott grew up in Wimbledon, south London, where he attended King's College School, a member of the Eton Group of schools. He studied classics at Christ's College, Cambridge, and sat for an MPhil and PhD in classics at Magdalene College, Cambridge. At Cambridge he was also a Moses and Mary Finley research fellow in ancient history at Darwin College, as well as an affiliated lecturer in the Faculty of Classics. Scott is now an associate professor in classics and ancient history at the University of Warwick. The focus of his work is on the ancient history and archaeology of the Greek and Roman worlds.


In 2010, Scott wrote and presented his first BBC documentary about Delphi, "Delphi: The Bellybutton of the Ancient World" - a BBC Four programme that investigated "the secrets of the most famous oracle in the ancient world". Since then he has written and presented a wide range of television and radio documentary programmes including "Guilty Pleasures: Luxury in Ancient Greece" a documentary that aired on BBC Four in June 2011.

His television programmes on ancient history have aired on National Geographic Channel (Jesus: Rise To Power), BBC One (Rome's Invisible City), BBC Two (Who Were The Greeks), BBC Four (Ancient Greece: The Greatest Show on Earth), and ITV (Roman Britain From The Air co presented with Christine Bleakley). His radio programmes include the Spin the Globe series on BBC Radio 4 which picks the most famous dates in history and examines what else was happening around the globe apart from the event that made that date important.
