That's what the templates are for. See
for information on where to put edited templates - per list, per
domain or sitewide.

The base templates are in templates/<language>. The archive ones are
arch*.html and article.html.

After editing the templates, they will only affect new pages. To change
all archive pages for a list or lists, you need

bin/arch --wipe <listname>

assuming you have the cumulative
archives/private/<listname>.mbox/<listname>.mbox file intact.
