I just came in on this; I'd be interested in the linguistic evidence.

Some of the psalms are clearly very old because they are the same hymns as
hymns to Ba'al, Yam, and El, with different gods' names.     That would have
to be period of the judges.    I think there are also several tha techo the
Song of the Sea, which is equally old.
