Abstract Dating of a relict shell horizon (Saccostrea cucullata) on Hong Kong Island located approximately 1.7 m above present day high tide level constrains the timing of a late Holocene higher sea-level. At 5140 ± 50 yr BP sea-level in the South China area was 4-5 m higher with respect to the Principal Datum (2.7 m below high tide mark) than at present.
