Can anyone help me locate a list of the 114 surahs that indicates from which period each dates?

Hi, all, I have been really stumped by this question, and I'm almost convinced that such a list does not exist! I've already looked in four encyclopedias (EB, Routledge's 2006 _The Qur'an: an encyclopedia_, Mir's 1987 _Dictionary of Qur'anic terms and concepts_, and Macmillan's 2004 _Encyclopedia of Islam and the Muslim World_) and several books about the Qur'an, as well, including Neal Robinson's helpful _Discovering the Qur'an_ (2003). However, none of these sources has such a list.
