Hi to all!

I´m working on a project at university and need the aproximate year of
creation of the oldest manuscripts found on these sacred scriptures:

Mahabharata
Ramayana
Rg Veda
Jayur Veda
Atharva Veda
Sama Veda
Vedanta Sutra
Bhagavata Purana (Srimad Bhagavatam)
Samkhia of Kapila

I would really thank you if additional information is added, such as script
used (brahmi, kharoshti, devanagari, etc.), materials used (palm leave,
paper, wood, copper, etc.) and place of discovery.

I´d be looking forward to any contribution on this topic.
