"Look, I can take you as far as Anchorhead. You can get a transport there to Mos Eisley or wherever you're going."
―Luke Skywalker, to Obi-Wan Kenobi[1]

Anchorhead was a small town on Tatooine. It offered connections to other cities on the planet, such as Mos Eisley.


By the time of the Galactic Civil War, Tusken Raiders had gathered in large enough numbers to attack the outskirts of small towns such as Anchorhead.[2]

Shortly before the Battle of Yavin, Luke Skywalker offered to take Obi-Wan Kenobi there before making the decision to join him on his journey to Alderaan before the murder of his aunt and uncle at the hands of the Galactic Empire.[1]

Also, during this time, an Imperial Army installation, Fort Ironhand, had been erected near Anchorhead. The facility was commanded by Captain Kosh and the 68th Legion. It was destroyed prior to the Battle of Hoth by the local rebel cell.[3]
