Geologic samples for 14C age measurements were collected from the west, southwest and south coasts of Sri Lanka during October and November 1986. Sample points were leveled based on the Colombo datum level. Results presented below were obtained by liquid scintillation counting of methanol for coral and shell samples. Ages were measured from December 1986 to May 1987, at the Department of Geography, Hiroshima University, Radiocarbon Dating Laboratory, using the laboratory procedure described by Fujiwara and Nakata (1984). Sample preparation techniques were similar to those mentioned in the first list (Katupotha, 1988). The results are expressed in radiocarbon years relative to ad 1950 based on the Libby half-life of 5568 ± 30 years, using the new oxalic acid standard (SRM 4900C) as ‘modern’ (Stuiver, 1983).
