Fashghah - (13)

Fashghah is located in the Wadi al-Qawr, an important east-west thoroughfare in the southern enclave of Ra's al-Khaimah. In the early 1980s prehistoric tombs were located here which were later excavated between 1989 and 1992 by a British expedition. Fashghah is most notable because it was there that a hitherto unknown, horseshoe-shaped type of tomb was first discovered. A virtually identical one has also been excavated at Qidfa in the emirate of Fujairah. These tombs date to the late second millennium BC but were re-used in the Iron Age and in the time of al-Dur and Mileiha (first century AD) as well. Hundreds of soft-stone vessels of Iron Age type were recovered in the tomb at Fashghah.
