I don't know what your point of reference is when you say "relatively young", as at least this timeline of programming languages (pretty image) suggests that languages I'd put in the "dynamic" basket (little typing,runtime code modification,(bytecode) interpreter) seem to start 1959 (Lisp) and seem to be available since the late '80s (*sh+awk, 1978; Smalltalk, 1980; Perl/Tcl, 1987)... Maybe you mean "other" dynamic languages (which aren't even included in the pretty graph), like Python (1991) and Ruby (1995)...
