There might be a simpler (as in more modern) way, but I use a
combination of is_{something}() followed by a suitable call to
the_time() to set my title.

For e.g.,

<?php /* If this is a daily archive */ } if (is_day()) { ?>
<h2 class="pagetitle">Archive for <?php the_time('F jS, Y'); ?></h2>

<?php /* If this is a monthly archive */ } elseif (is_month()) { ?>
<h2 class="pagetitle">Archive for <?php the_time('F, Y'); ?></h2>

<?php /* If this is a yearly archive */ } elseif (is_year()) { ?>
<h2 class="pagetitle">Archive for <?php the_time('Y'); ?></h2>
