ARC 1 to 10 are a token collection of Archimedes stuff.
Tested in Arculator 2.0. 9th June 2021 . The 800k images (4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 10) seem to be unreadable. If anyone can do something with these, please let me know.

For a huge collection of software for the Archimedes, go to APDL. ARC-11 is a rather large zipped file of APDL PD and Freeware software taken from there on 10th June 2021. With many thanks to David Holden, Aaron Timbrell & David Bradforth
