The long-awaited summer is among us – with sufficient sunlight for a whole year, it’s time to recharge. The office and the News section will quiet down for the summer months as most of the summer vacations end up being held around the up and coming weeks. But do stay tuned in; we’ve got some very exciting things happening later this year on the Archeus front. As for now, we wish to thank our partners, clients and acquaintances for the first half of the year and wish you all a great Midsummer and a joyful summertime!
