Question Importing from old archive html files?

I ran a site 20 years ago that was lost and recently acquired the entire archive or everything that is on archive.org - it's a ton of posts, attachments, etc.

Is there any way at all to import from the archive (for example index.php?t-125231.html or whatever) into a real post in a database? Obviously expecting some data loss, non-recovery of users, etc. But is ANYTHING possible?

If not I will likely just upload the html archive and let search engines crawl it, maybe remove the links to the 'real' forum that no longer exists.
