Dig is a children's archaeology magazine, published by Cricket Media and associated with the Archaeological Institute of America.

The magazine is published several times per year. Each issue is 48 pages, and most of the issues are theme-based, on archaeological finds from various countries. It illustrates what archaeologists have found, and also explore the cultural, scientific, and architectural accomplishments of the societies that left these artifacts. Themes have included "Who Were the First Americans?" in April 2007, and "Australia: Land of the Unknown" (April 2006), and "Machu Piccu" (Nov. 2005). In other issues, the theme might be a broad cultural constant between several ancient civilizations. Examples of this include "For the Love of Money" in March 2007, "Disaster" in Feb. 2007, and "High Fashion" in May 2006.

Most issues also include puzzles and hands-on projects.
