An archeo-teleo link is a complete history of a civilization or society from its earliest beginnings to its current, or final form. The tendency of language to drift, and for resources to be lost to the ravages of violence or even time itself means that it is exceptionally rare. It’s possible that the United States of America on Earth Prime could form one eventually, given that its founding and history is well-preserved, but it is far too young to be considered a teleological version of itself as of 2022. Knowledge from origin to endpoint, a full history which we don’t have on Earth.
