Monthly comic strip featuring the archaeologist Dr. Dig and his critter pals developed by Carus Publishing for Dig Magazine. Each month the magazine focuses on one particular topic, and presents it in a way that is appropriate for Middle School-aged kids.

Tombs, mummies, dinosaurs – budding archaeologists ages 9 to 14 are off to new adventures at archaeological sites around the world, where they look over the shoulders of professional archaeologists working in the field to unearth important finds. But not all archaeology takes place at a dig site – DIG also brings readers right into working laboratories and museums to learn about cutting-edge conservation techniques. Interviews with onsite archaeologists give children a well-rounded view what archaeology is really all about.

Kindle Magazines are fully downloaded onto your Kindle so you can read them even when you’re not wirelessly connected.

I used DIG in my sixth grade social studies classroom to supplement the curriculum. DIG is a great example of informational text that one can actually enjoy reading due to the illustrations, the to-the-point captions and texts. It is a great collection providing a variety of reading for one subject matter. I am glad that I found it available on my Kindle Fire.

One of the best children magazines around. While each issues has a central feature (Egypt, Maya, etc,) it never fails to cover a broad scope of Archaeology. The history is covered and the methods used by scientists to recreate the past are explained in a concise and understandable format. The most important part, I feel, is that Dig will entertain, challenge, and teach an appreciation of the past.
