Ian Edelman was Head of Digital for Qatar Museums until 2016, and previously Head of Online Content for the Museum of Islamic Art in Doha, Qatar.

Before moving to the Arabian Gulf he was Web Manager for Hampshire County Council's Culture, Communities and Business Services in the UK.

An archaeologist by training and traditional museum curator by background, he became Web Manager for the Hampshire Museums Service in 1998, having worked in curatorial roles for the service since 1987, and at other museums in the UK since 1977.

Much of the digital work I created is long gone, from my first web page in 1998 through to more recent stuff which has been altered after I departed. A lot can be still be seen on, so I cannot escape what I published in bygone times.
