The present work provides the generalization to the approach proposed by Frei and Chen to square masks of any dimension for line and edge detection in digital images. It is completed with the application of the designed algorithm to the image of a archaeological site, that to our judgement permit us to establish an correlation between the mathematical results and results of the archaeologicals explorations
