The boy that found them is named Philpott, but the hoard is being called
the Wilcott hoard. Where did they get Wilcott for the name?

I suppose they were found near Wilcott which is in Wiltshire where the hoard
was found.  It's common practice to name hoards after the town nearest to
where they were found.  Billy
