If you have an .mbox file for each list and you want to use the 
default Pipermail archiver, it would be as simple as concatenating 
the old .mbox file with the one in the mailman archive directory and 
then running bin/arch --wipe to generate a new archive.

If they are only in HTML format, probably the simplest thing to do 
would be to put them in a separate directory and edit your archive 
template files pages to include a link that points to the "Old 
Archives". You would still need to run bin/arch --wipe to get those 
links to show up in the all of the new archive pages.
