How do I retrieve an email that has been archived?

Depends what you're using to access your account, and where you do your archiving. Gmail's archiving is simply the act of removing the inbox label from messages, leaving them to be viewed either under custom labels you've created, or listed under "All Mail".

Where is "all mail" and is it represented by a symbol or the words? Thanks.

I'm having the same problem.  I found all mail.  You see where they have "In Box", "Sent" "drafts", etc?  Scroll to the bottom and click on "more".  It looked to me like there was nothing more.  At least for the first half a dozen times.  Then I noticed the scroll bar was shorter meaning there are more labels.  Scrolled up and by golly I saw "All".  I managed to put them all back into the inbox but that included many deleted items.  I'm now sitting here trying to figure out how to get them back into trash.

  you may need to click the 3 lines in gmail at top left to make them show 
 
if its not that : 
 
click the gear  picture ( cog wheel )  in gmail ( at top right )   click  settings   click  labels   choose show in label list

OR

  IMAGE INCLUDED BELOW THE EXPLANATION   while you are in gmail - on the far left is your label list , there is a line below the last visible label which you can drag up or down ( if you cant see it grab the top of your chat box and drag it down ) , drag it down until you see more ( if you cant see more - hover over the last visible label for a second and it will expand )   , click more then scroll down to see all labels , you can also drag labels to above or below that line as well   ( alternatives to this method :  click manage labels ( at the VERY BOTTOM of the label list after you click MORE to set which labels to show above the line and which to hide ( here https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/#settings/labels  )  OR via the top right gear icon in gmail > settings > labels OR via the pull down menu next to each label )
you can also minimise the chat / gadgets which will help a lot  by clicking on the bottom left chat bubble or the gadgets ellipses  (...), their icons will go grey when minimised , or if you dont use chat you can turn it off in settings  here https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/#settings/chat  , if you do you can enable the lab for right side chat here https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/#settings/labs    you can also try zoom out ( control minus a few times )
