I am trying to find an alternativ look at the archiv output page.

If you click a archiv link you receive a view e.g. from the Month. And just this site where i recieve the strained output i wish to apply some changes.

And so i mean not:

wp_get_archives()

Sincerely Illu

If you want to create a couple of small changes, then just filter it using the wordpress function is_archive(), e.g.

<?php if (is_archive()) { ?>
Say hello to the archeologist users
<?php } ?>

...otherwise, if you wish to possess a completly different template for your page, then just produce a file known as archive.php inside your theme directory. Hope I understood your question right :)

More assets for that is_archive() function will be found here - well described good examples. And more details about template files are here
