An itinerant poet or strolling minstrel (also known variously as a gleeman, circler, or cantabank) was a wandering minstrel, bard, or other poet common in medieval Europe but extinct today. They were a lower class than jesters or jongleurs, because they did not have steady work, but roamed about making their living instead.
