This is a stone on top of a long barrow in Dorset the photograph was taken during the solstice day time. To me it's symbolism seems apparent. The flat part of the stone (Shown) accurately faces the winter solstice sunset, meaning the rounded part faces the summer solstice sunrise. It has been 'worked on' so that it must have originally been part of some sort of framework. The barrow lays north and south.

ancient wooden post?

This is a wooden post that does not seem to be of any use on some land near a barn in Dorset that is left uncultivated almost as if the area is a barrow. It is very similar to the stone on top of a long barrow about a mile away.
