Al Qor (Arabic: القور‎) is a settlement in Ras Al Khaimah, United Arab Emirates (UAE). The area is rich in archaeological sites and finds date human settlement back to the Umm Al Nar period – 2600 BCE.[1] Al Qor is located within the Wadi Qor and is prone to intense flooding.[2] It was traditionally home to the Bani Kaab tribe.
