It depends entirely on how the site is managed. If the archives are
database driven (and why shouldn't they be) then it would be a relatively
simple task. Each page is built on the fly, so all it would mean is
updating a template.

If the site were built with a tool like Frontier, then even 'static' pages
would be easy to update. Frontier itself is a database that lets you render
pages and update them as required.
